We're seeing a surge in caregiver job applications as we head into mid-January 2013
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
In January 2012, the average number of daily job searches on Indeed.com was 40 percent higher than December 2011. myCNAjobs experienced a similar trend, meaning the competition for Caregiver, Home Health Aide, and CNA jobs is much higher in January than December.
"We're seeing a surge in caregiver job applications as we head into mid-January 2013," says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer of myCNAjobs, a caregiver recruitment vehicle. "Employers tend to hire caregivers consistently throughout the year. However, in-demand and highly qualified caregivers follow similar trends to other job searchers during Q1. It's a great time for companies to recruit seasoned veterans that are in caregiving for reasons beyond a paycheck," adds Kurtyka.
January and February - referred to as the peak hiring season - is prime time to capture passive candidates that may be seeking a growth opportunity and new challenge. Preparing and adapting recruiting strategies around this time while understanding the cycles of recruitment is critical. With nearly 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring each day and close to a fifty percent caregiver turnover rate, competition for top caregiver talent is steep.
