That is all.
Okay, a little more. ; )
In the seasonal world, the turn of the calendar from December to January acts as the green light of a NASCAR race. Everyone truly interested in working summer jobs in great places gets on-line and starts applying. As employers, it's both a wonderful time and a stressful time as your in-box just tripled in size. I say embrace it and work the applications to the best of your ability.
I've written about this before, several times actually, and my hope is always the same.
All applicants that take the time to fill out your application get the respect they deserve. They get thanked for their time and their interest and they get a response.
If you need a better way to manage your incoming job applications, ask me or anyone on the Cool Works team about our seasonal focused applicant tracking system called Staffing Center. We've been helping employers get control of their seasonal hiring process since 2001.
