Summer is well and truly underway, and it has been the best UK summer we have seen in a very long time. Sunshine creates instant happiness, time spent in pub gardens, and many a day spent basking in the sunshine forgetting all our worries.
As a recruitment company, the pattern we have seen over the past 12 years is that as soon as people get back from their holidays, the days are getting shorter and colder and reality sets in, so a career move is high on many people’s agenda. Come September, CVs hit our inbox as quickly as those Boris Johnson complaints, and although that’s great news for us and our clients, it may not be as good for the candidate. As always, like every recruiter should, we try our best to make sure each and every CV that comes through our door gets the attention it deserves, but with so many CVs to choose from, it does happen that some get overlooked and may just slip through the net.
So how do you stop this from happening? Act now! If your CV hits our Inbox now, we have more time to assess it, more time to pick up the phone and have a conversation with you, and your CV will attract lots of attention from all our consultants. So, when that perfect job comes in for you in September, you will be at the forefront of everyone’s minds before we even advertise the job! Wouldn’t that be a great position to be in?
So, if you are thinking “I will enjoy the summer then think about my career”, maybe reevaluate that thought. Don’t follow the trend, slip through the net or miss out on that dream job, update your CV NOW and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org get ahead of the game so that when those dark nights draw in, you are in that happy place with a shiny new job to look forward to.
