There’s no season like the holiday season. It’s most definitely a unique time of the year from a talent acquisition standpoint. On one hand, recruiters get to go on a break and finally unwind after a hectic year. And on the other hand, it can be quite pressuring to get everything done on time before Christmas.

So holiday recruiting can either be a talent acquisition team’s worst nightmare or a blessing in disguise.

With the holidays right around the corner, it becomes relatively harder to manage everything at once. From completing last-minute tasks, connecting with family, double-booking weekends, and of course – the shopping.

But at the same time, talent acquisition teams have some great advantages when it comes to recruiting in this merry month. Talent pools become smaller and easier to manage, competition isn’t too strong, top talent are still looking to get hired, and it’s a great time to network and connect with people.

If you’re a talent acquisition specialist who’s hiring this holiday season, be sure to keep these 12 things in mind!
