January is job hunting peak, says survey
Workers are keen to look for a new job in January, new research has discovered.

According to a report by Jobsite, activity peaks on January 7th with almost half of all employees looking for a new position.

Chief executive of the firm Keith Potts remarked that the figures make sense.

"With time off over Christmas to reflect on your current job situation, it's perhaps unsurprising that the first Monday back in the office (January 7th) sends most people looking for something more fulfilling," he said.

In fact, the survey discovered that 41 per cent of workers will look for a new job this month, while 61 per cent are planning to dedicate two hours a day of their time to the pursuit.

Albert Ellis, the chief executive at Harvey Nash, recently warned that employers should be looking for job candidates that possess the X Factor.
