I have had a number of conversations the last two weeks regarding 2014 recruiting with a common theme:
When should we start?
Part of the answer depends on when in Q1 you want folks to be starting. The CEO I spoke with yesterday said Jan 6th, the first full week of 2014.
My answer to the CEO:
Here’s the deal… we have roughly nine weeks until the first full week of 2014.
We lose a couple of days for Thanksgiving and likely many around Christmas and New Years with them being in the middle of the week.
Let’s say we lose two weeks for the holidays, vacations and personal days.
