We’ve spoken before about how recruitment actually picks up in December rather than slowing down for the holiday season, and as a trusted recruitment agency in Surrey, On Track know that our candidates can sometimes struggle to balance such a busy time of year with job related activities. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to go all out, and that there are a few things you can do to keep on top of things this Christmas.
Keep Things Updated
Whether you need to change some information on your CV, or refresh your LinkedIn page, now is a great time to ensure that everything concerning your job hunt is up to date.
Curate Your Content
Christmas is one of those times of year when things get a little crazy, and people get a little silly. Make sure any embarrassing photos of you are untagged, deleted, or just simply aren’t available to potential employers.
Take a Break
Whilst it’s important to keep an eye out for new opportunities and to keep applying throughout December, it’s also vital to give yourself chance to rest and recuperate. Job hunting can be stressful at the best of times, and burnout is common at this time of year; you’ll want to start any new job feeling refreshed and optimistic, not tired and miserable because you spent all of your holiday searching for jobs.
