We at Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment like to celebrate the first week of September. The shops are full of wonderful autumn clothes, Strictly, Bake Off and The Crown are all back, and we are awash with new dramas (I am hooked on Deep Water). It’s also when the Oscar season starts with fab films arriving at our local cinemas.
I prefer September to January. Okay, we are back to work, but are feeling refreshed and reenergised after the summer break and it’s still warm! September is thought of as the unofficial second new year, and like January, more and more people either revisit their January resolutions or make new ones, setting themselves targets for the forthcoming months. It feels a bit like a fresh start after overindulgence at BBQs and Festivals throughout the summer, similar to too much turkey and quality street post-Christmas.
September is a time when people contemplate moving homes, evaluate their personal relationships, and consider a career change. It is also a great time to think about learning new skills, upskilling, expanding your network, and finding the life/work balance you perhaps had during the summer break.
Over the summer you may have been thinking about where you want to work next, and already updated your CV and LinkedIn profile in time for the flurry of new jobs that come onto the market in September. Candidates ought to add to their CV any new skills or experience they have gained. Spend some time researching brands or companies you would like to work for and reengage with reputable recruitment agencies. Many of our clients look to recruit new teams in September – it’s the start of a very busy period for us, which will run through until the end of November.
We at Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment always welcome new clients and candidates, so do get in touch.
Welcome back coats, boots, and woolly hats. Mmm, pumpkin spice lattes!
