The trees have lost their vibrant colors and look skeletal in the park. There is a bitter cold frost brewing in the air. With the first week of December upon us, IT recruiting companies are aware of the winter pangs. How can technical recruiters bear the dipping temperatures as winter approaches? Read on for some helpful tips!
Winter is the perfect opportunity to splurge on high quality wool pea coats or down jackets. Dress up the coats and jackets with hats, scarves, and gloves for extra warmth. Invest in water proof snow boots to combat the impending blizzards. Try to dress in layers so you will be comfortable both outside and inside the IT recruiting office.
The winter is an excellent time to utilize public transportation, especially if you are weary of driving in less than desirable circumstances or wish to avoid shoveling. If you must use your car, make sure it is up to winter driving standards. Check your car to ensure it is prepared for the winter and ice with snow tires, proper brakes, and plenty of gas, antifreeze, and windshield wiper fluid. Pack an emergency bag in your trunk in the event of a roadside emergency.
Exercise has been proven to boost one’s mood, so do not use the dark and dreary cold as an excuse to be lazy or catch the winter blues. Invite a fellow IT recruiter for a weekend ski or snowboarding trip. Get your daily dose of vitamin D by walking with a technical recruiter during lunch when the sun is at its peak of the day. Take outdoor activities such as running and biking indoors to the gym. If you choose to continue fitness outside, dress appropriately for the dark and temperature.
There are plenty of other ways for technical recruiting agencies to stay warm during the winter. Grab coffee or tea with candidates and hiring managers or bake for the IT staffing office. Remember, when you feel the winter blues sneaking up on you remind yourself spring will be here before you know it!
