IT recruiters Boston not only share the benefit of working with different clients and building networks, but they also have the city at their fingertips. Technical recruiting companies should take advantage of what the city has to offer. Here are some suggestions to have fun outside the offices of IT staffing agencies.
One of the perks of working in one of the oldest cities in the country is all of the historical landmarks and sites scattered throughout Boston. Educate yourself with a walk along the Freedom Trail or visit a museum. If you are not into the do-it yourself routine, take a guided tour such as the Boston Duck Tours. Invite fellow technical recruiters to share the experience and build a bond outside IT recruiting firms.
There are a number of ways to be physically active in Boston without wearing down your wallet. The Frog Pond in the Boston Commons has public skating during the winter as well as a wading pool in the summer. Take a stroll through the public garden as the flowers begin to blossom and sail or kayak the Charles River if you want to be more in touch with nature.
Faneuil Hall and Newbury Street are among the many hot spots for shoppers in Boston. During a lunch trip away from IT recruiting companies, peruse the vast shops of Downtown Crossings. Walk through Haymarket to find numerous street vendors offering fresh produce at steal prices.
Boston’s dining experiences are unlike any other. Coordinate an IT recruiting lunch or dinner for co-workers to show your appreciation and to discuss your non-work related lives. If you are short on time, there are plenty of small shops, from bakeries in the North End to ice cream shops scattered throughout Boston, you will not be disappointed.
There are plenty of other things to do in Boston. Catch a Red Sox game or enjoy free concerts at the Hatchshell. If the weather is not so good, see if the Celtics or Bruins are playing for last minute tickets or share drafts friends. If you are more of a night owl, explore Boston’s diverse nightlife and find your niche.
The city does not need to be just your place of work, explore what you have been missing and share ideas and tips with another technical recruiter.
