Why Back To School Time For Kids Means Back To Job Searching For You

Why Back To School Time For The Kids Means Back To Job Searching For You

Summer is coming to an end, which means that back to school time is upon us. For parents, this can be a painful time. It’s hard to watch your youngest go off to school for the first time, hard to send the kiddos back after a long summer of bonding, and for some, it’s hard that it didn’t happen sooner. For those in the workforce, back to school time also means a great opportunity to start thinking about a new job. Here are 4 reasons why it’s the perfect time to make a move to the next step in your career.

1. Fall is rejuvenating. As the great F. Scott Fitzgerald once coined, “life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” This season seems to bring the life back into people, as it cools down and nature really shows off all of its best colors and wonders. Whether you’ve been stuck in the same job for years, aren’t feeling passionate about your role, or aren’t connecting to your companies mission, take this change in seasons to really contemplate what you want.

2. It’s the perfect time to settle into a new opportunity before the holidays. Holiday schedules are always hectic, making it nearly impossible to search for a job let alone contemplate what you might want that to look like. If you find that new position now, you can be comfortable and stress-free by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, allowing you to focus on family and other important things. Plus, it’s a great way to get a jump start in accomplishing those new years resolutions!

3. Hiring Managers are looking to max out their hiring budgets. As we quickly approach year end, hiring managers have budgets left to hire. This means that there are more opportunities and they are paying top dollar for great candidates. After the new year, companies will be resetting their budgets and spending conservatively, so now is the time to get the edge.

4. The candidate driven market is in full force. Candidates are in control of the job market. This means that what you might not have been able to ask for in the past (a pay raise, an extra week of vacation, etc.) you have full power to request. Of course, that’s within reason, but at least you can job search confidently knowing that your needs will be considered.
