Why changing seasons signal changing jobs

Yesterday was the first day of fall, although you might not know it here in Philadelphia, where temperatures are reaching the 80s again. Still, the rustling of early foliage is overcome only by the rustling of restless IT pros gearing up for a job search, says Deborah Perelman for eWEEK's Channel Insider.

According to Deborah, this time of year is a natural period for transition, as vacations end, students go back to school and people start looking ahead to the new year and new goals.

Indeed, no time like the present to think about your 2008 plans. By throwing your hat into the ring now, you can beat the pack of fellow seekers who begin the hunt post-New Year's resolution. Plus, you get your momentum going before the distraction of the holidays, can round out the year at your current company and kick off 2008 with a new workplace adventure.

Just one extra tip before you get started: Consider consulting or contracting for your next move. It's a great way to hone and expand your skill sets while working with diverse companies, managers and projects.

So how have you fared with seasonal job searches before? Do the spring buds or autumn leaves stir your job wanderlust? And have different seasons ever impacted your hunt in a particular way? Tell us how!
