January the month of Mondays where even the most optimistic and energetic personality can lose their usual enthusiasm and feel down in the dumps. So what we can we do to get through the month feeling more positive than ever?
With the end of 2017 fast approaching us we thought it would be nice to remember some of our favourite events and jobs we have had the pleasure to experience this year between us and our sister company Five Rivers Recruitment. After some debate and a few tense moments over some mulled wine and mince pies here are our top 3 events of the year:
A massive congratulations goes to Adrian Cooke who is our employee of the month for September 2017…
Research tells us that there are many health benefits to having a pet at work, for example 89 per cent of healthcare professionals agree that stroking a pet can lower blood pressure and therefore reduce stress. More and more companies are allowing our four legged best friends into the office.
Just imagine if you were the only person left in the world. Everything could be done your way! No more negotiating, no communication (except with the animals), a world where you don’t need to influence anyone to get what you want. Heaven or hell?
Pop along to our our office where we will be have a range of beautiful home made cakes and tea + coffee available to help raise money for Macmillan
We’ve seen a real increase over the last couple of weeks of young adults coming in to ask our advice on future careers and CV help. We are seeing a huge volume of candidates that don’t have a CV in place and this has prompted us to question if this is not being focused on in schools as it was certainly when I was in year 10 and 11.
We see teenagers receive a lot of flack generally in the employment industry, however…
At this time of year we register a huge number of students looking for summer work. For many this will be their first job which can be extremely daunting. We were all young once (although it might feel like a lifetime ago!) and can remember interview nerves, so should your bring a parent or guardian along with you when you come in to register?
We all get nervous when we think about the daunting interview experience.
However, we don’t always need to feel this way!
If we take this experience and turn it around into something positive, it can actually be a very helpful process that can actually give us confidence for the future.
