Keep up that job search this summer!

It’s been a glorious summer (sort of) and there’s signs that the hot weather will last long into September, meaning some job seekers may continue with the impression that summertime can be a slow time to find a job. It’s true that hiring managers are also allowed to go on holiday, which can sometimes delay the interview for your dream job, but there’s still plenty of opportunity out there. Take a look at our top tips for getting the best out of your job search this summer:

It’s all about the industry. For some industries, summer is a slower time, meaning there’s more time to interview and prepare for the busy season.

The jobs are still there. Companies still need to operate when everyone else is enjoying the sunshine; take the opportunity when other job seekers may be taking a break to enjoy the summer.

Get Social.  Summer is a social time, and there will be lots of opportunities to network. Get yourself out there!

Summer is a great time to start a new job. As it can be a slower time for companies, it’s a great time to get used to a new team and a new job, before things start picking up again.

If you’re serious about finding work, make your summer job search your priority. For advice, contact the FS1 team on 01908 787 560.
