IT Recruiting: Out with Summer, In with Fall

As the summer winds down, technical recruiting companies get a second wind.  With children returning to school, parents experienced in the information technology industry may seek IT jobs to fill up free time.  Interns return to their respective colleges and universities, leaving technical recruiters to take on the workload.  How can IT recruiters still manage their time while appreciating the fall?


IT recruiters Boston have the luxury of New England’s infamous fall weather and beautiful foliage.  Take a walk after work through the woods or plan a weekend hike with friends.  Go for a drive north and see what the hype is with leaf peeping.  Many farms offer apple picking which can be great for children as well as adults, plus you will have a treat to bring in the IT staffing office after.

Social Life

The fall is pumpkin season, so grab a fellow recruiter and treat yourselves to a pumpkin muffin and coffee.  A hard day in the life of technical recruiting agencies?  Go downtown for pumpkin ale after work.  If you are more of a baker, carve a pumpkin and use the inside to make a pie or bread.

Oktoberfest lasts from mid-September through the beginning of October.  IT recruiting companies can attend the Harpoon Brewery’s celebration or Harvard Square’s festivities with friends and family.  Once the celebration dies down, you can begin preparing for Halloween.

Get Out of Town

If you miss Oktoberfest, plan a long weekend getaway for Columbus Day or a vacation and research the best deals.  With off-season rates and less tourists, you will be able to enjoy your time off more while leaving some money in your pocket, too.  If you cannot plan a whole trip, buy tickets to a football game and make a day out of it with tailgating!
