Why Spring is the Perfect Time to Start Again on Your Career Plans

‘Spring is when life’s alive in everything’, – Christina Rossetti

Did New Year pass you by in a blur of broken resolutions?! If so, all is not lost! Spring is here, bringing with it: lighter evenings, brighter mornings and the promise of summer sun, oh and bank holidays! What more do you need to get energised?

How about the fact that next Monday – 20th March – is the International Day of Happiness?  Coordinated by Action for Happiness, the day aims to get people to “…take action to increase wellbeing in their homes, workplaces, schools and local communities.”

So, seeing as we’re passionate about improving lives through placing great people in great jobs with great companies this USP Monday we wanted to inspire those of you who’ve got the urge to make a job move to spring into action!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Think about where you want to be and what skills and qualifications you might need
Refresh your CV with this new role in mind – use relevant keywords and highlight requisite soft skills
Set yourself some attainable targets and book time out in your diary – remember think SMART when it comes to goals!
