Your job search doesn’t have to take a summer break

So it’s Summer - Time to unwind, relax and …… job search?

That’s right, job search.

Contrary to popular belief, Summer can be a great time to look for new job opportunities – and we’re here to tell you why…

Less Competition

With a lot of people still under the assumption that there are no vacancies available during the sunny months, it’s a great time to search! Firstly the competition will be lower as there will be fewer applications so you will be in a better position to stand out.

There’s still jobs

The fact of the matter is, there are still jobs out there.

You don’t want to slow down your job search or you could miss out on some great opportunities. As we said before, it’s an excellent time to take advantage of this.

While others are still buying into the ‘summer slowdown’ myth you can be well on your way to secure your dream role.

Happier Workplace

With the sun shining, longer days and people getting a bigger dose of vitamin D, the mood in most offices is at an all-time high. As a new starter, this is a good time for a company to showcase themselves in the best light.

Not to mention the up and coming summer parties that can act as one of the best ice-breakers for you as a new employee!

Easier Transition

Summertime is typically a less hectic time to transition to a new job.
Prospects can get acquainted with the company when fewer people are in the office and things are slower.

It can also be less traumatic for families if a move is involved since children wouldn’t have to switch school’s mid-year.

So don’t delay – find great opportunities at now!
