The first working Monday of the year – or, “Massive Monday”, marks a record number of jobseekers applying for roles, according to Recruitment Grapevine.

It seems after a Christmas filled with eating, drinking and merriment, applicants are ready to kickstart the new year by considering their career options – school leavers, students and graduates included.

Many student Christmas’s are filled with revision and essay writing, but with submission dates passing, their focus turns to their future job opportunities. Those students looking at graduate schemes in particular are increasingly aware of upcoming deadlines across many industries.

Far from being simply a “Massive Monday”, January is a Massive Month for Milkround, as we see 52% more visits to our site than any other month and over 94% more candidate applications than any other month.
