Every year's this time, many people change their jod after getting the premium of the whole year. However, now the economic surroundings are worse than before. Do you think it's still a good time to find a job?

Personally i don't think its a good time to look for a job. Unemployment has risen due to the Economic Financial Crisis. This time of year there are a lot of graduates and looking for a better job now would rather be difficult. It would be better to work hard for now on your current job and try to get promoted. You already know the people and you have a grasp with how things are done in the company.

Really, I cant understand the question that much, is it about changing jobs or finding a new one? But here is it, if you are jobless, of course you should. It will sure help you compensate on your need as a person. But changing jobs, I guess it's not the right time. Let's consider the global crisis, a lot of people out there are dying just to get the job that you have, why not hold it for a while? Let's look on the situation of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW's) that were being sent back in the Philippines,do you think they can easily get back to their work?

I have come!Registered last night! At this special time, most people certainly think that steady income is the most important thing.So they keep still at the old job position.Maybe I am one of those ones.But the one who changes a job at this time is a really warrior and a really person of ability!

I think the best time find a job (if you're talking about month) is in January because its the start of a new year-new career-new path-new beginnings. Not to mention come December you'll receive a full 13th month pay & bonuses. It is not good to find a job in December because of all the holidays which your company might require you to still go to work when everyone is busy shopping. If your not happy with your present job and you don't see yourself as someone who will work there forever....well its about time you find a new job or maybe you should just rest for like a few months and then decide what type of job you will enjoy doing then put your heart to it and prepare yourself for the responsibilities. Even there's an economic crisis in other countries which affects the world,there are still a lot of jobs out there waiting for you to discover. Goodluck in finding the right job!!God bless!!Happy Holidays!!!

It really depends on how good the job market is where you live. I live in the U.S. and the economy is not good at all. It's very difficult to find a job and I wouldn't recommend that anyone leave their job until they find a new one.

No. This is not a good time to find a work. Because You will have to compete with too many competitors, and there will always be somebody who is willing to work for a lower salary than Yours. So it will pretty hard for You. Will work much and get paid the minimum for the work done! But this is surely a good time to start Your own business and find cheap employees...! ;)

For getting a good job there is no good time and it depends on your educational qualification and skill.If your are professionally skilled in any technical field,getting a good job is not a problem at all.
