When Is The Best Time To Change Jobs

?, or when is the best time to switch careers?

The answer depends on whether you are retiring, moving into a new career, relocating for personal reasons, changing jobs because of poor performance or an unwanted transfer. It also depends on your industry and occupation. Some industries have seasonal peaks in hiring while others are recession-proof. For example, many occupations that rely heavily on government contracts can remain open during economic downturns when private sector businesses shut down.
