Think there’s no point in job hunting now that summer is underway? Think again: While vacations and staggered schedules means it may take a bit longer for hiring managers to review applications and interview candidates, in U.S. workplaces no one is ever out for the entire summer, or even truly removed from the workplace, thanks to (or no thanks to) our ubiquitous smart phones.

“Why waste three months when you can move things forward during that time?” says career coach Laura Berman Fortgang, author of Now What? 90 Days to a New Life Direction. There may even be some advantages to having your cover letter hit someone’s desk at this time, she adds: “Sometimes, summer’s quieter pace gives hiring managers a bit more ‘brain space,’ so they are more attentive to employment applications.”
