October 21st is a festival called Apple Day for residents of the United Kingdom. Over here in New England, everyday can be Apple Day in the fall. Rinse off those apples you picked a few weeks ago and get ready to bake for your IT recruiting office!
The Baked Goods
Most IT staffing agencies have a designated baker along with a clan of voluntary eaters. If you have a surplus of apples, go with classic favorites such as apple pie or apple crisp. Want to really win over IT recruiters? Bring in a gallon of vanilla ice cream to go with the warm treat.
If you are concerned about temperature sensitive dishes, bake an apple strudel or bread. When making bread and muffins, substitute apple sauce for any oil to cut down on fat and extra calories. Cookies and muffins are also excellent solutions in terms of portion control and serving sizes for the diet conscious IT headhunter.
Almost all candidates and patrons of IT staffing firms cannot turn down candy apples. Whether you dip them on a Friday night with your family or socializing with friends, making caramel apples is a fun and filling process. After dipping the apples, consider rolling the apples in chopped nuts for added protein and a crunchy kick. If you are daring, drench the dried caramel apples in chocolate and roll in crushed candy, cookies, or brown cinnamon sugar for an over the top dessert.
In addition to homemade applesauce, consider making some fresh apple jam or butter for technical recruiters. You can also give the jars as small thank you gifts for hiring managers or those who help you and make your time enjoyable at IT recruiting agencies.
Apples do not always need to be all dressed up in sugar or baked into sweets. Bring in some fresh apples at your IT recruiting company for a healthy treat. Studies have shown that just one apple a day can help with cholesterol and weight management as well as diabetes prevention.
Recruiters deserve a break after working hard sifting through resumes and setting up IT job interviews. Suddenly the fall just got sweeter for IT recruiting firms!
