Kathleen’s Answer

I found out that all seasons are difficult due to different reasons. Living in New York long Island. Being a nurse and an ultrasound technician. The weather is always hard in the winter due to the snow and cold weather conditions. It is very hard to get to work, I have to depend upon others to get me into work and then back home. Sometimes the staff replacement is late or not able to get into work in the snow. The spring break and the summer vacation is a time when alot of families want to go on vacation. It's not easy to get the dates you want due to seniority or short staffing. I found that the fall was the easiest time to get off. Sometimes I was able to get the dates off I wanted in the other seasons. I'm not working anymore but I have spoken with other people who are and they said due to the covid virus that it's been very difficult due to the shortage of staff. I would ask for weekends in the summer since my husband wasn't working on them so we could have more time together since he worked days and I worked nights.

Nathaniel’s Answer

I'm a chiropractor tor and summer seems o be the slowest. Our weather in Washington doesn't turn warm until about the time school is out and many take off on family outings or going to summer camp.

It depends! From Christmas to April is a bit dead in the VFX industry. Not many are in active post production during the holidays, so there isn't much work to go around, but...

The few months leading up to summer and the few leading into fall the studios are in post for all of their series! It's mountains of work, which can be tough when there's no other option than to work long hours. It's an ebb and flow!

Himaja’s Answer

Being in the business side of a software company the busiest times are before a new product is launched as we are preparing for a successful launch of the product. Products get launched year around except mid-November till January when we are slow during the winter Christmas break period.
Month-end, Quarter-end and Year-end are busy times for people working in Sales trying to close the monthly quota sales. It is also busy period for finance and teams supporting the sales .

Martha’s Answer

Great question! I work in corporate training for a worldwide company. We offer classes throughout most of the year, but things tend to slow down a bit right before Christmas until about the first week of January. In the US, demand decreases around national holidays like Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, and Independence Day.

However, when we're not actively teaching classes, we stay busy with other tasks such as creating content, updating our website and internal portals, promoting our training programs, and answering inquiries. So, the pace remains fairly steady, even though the activities might vary.
