Happy New Year

Happy New Year, candidate, Accountacy...

I hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoyed the New Year celebrations. It is a time when many people review their life and career and decide this is the time to move. That decision can last as long as a New Year's resolution. That is to say, not very long at all! If I am going to be messed around by candidates, it happens in January as people look for a new job enthusiastically until they settle back into their normal work pattern and decide that actually, they are fine where they are. By this stage, we as recruiters, have done lots of work for them, which turns into wasted time which we could have used on people who are serious about their job hunt.

We are delighted to help anyone who really is serious about their job change but please, please think through your reasons for wanting to leave your current company before approaching us. If you think those reasons will disappear as soon as the Christmas celebrations have faded, then it may be better to wait until you have solid reasons for moving.

Have a great week and look out for my new series of blogs for the older job seeker starting next week.
