“Holy Toledo, my desk is a mess.”
“I think I’m coming in on Saturday.”
“Whoa, it’s 2pm…I forgot to have lunch.”
Now, admittedly this doesn’t sound healthy in terms of work-life balance…but it’s thrilling to everyone who works here. We’re happy when it’s busy!
(Recruiters are like farmers: we make hay while the sun shines.)
Although the dramatic spikes and dips have evened out in the last several years — these days, companies tend to hire for the big picture and plan out their hiring across the year, rather than hiring in spurts — there does tend to be hiring seasons in the recruiting business. Summer is slow. Fall is usually busy.
And yep, August was quiet(ish).
September, however, is on fire.
We all keep saying we’ve got lots of assignments, there’s a steady flow of interviews. It feels busy.
So we ran the numbers — and they’re more surprising than we expected.
In the first nine days of September, compared to last year at the same time, we have 45% more jobs to fill.
Is it like this for you, too? Is your fall hiring season already in full swing, only nine days in?

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that tomorrow, September 7, is Grandparent’s Day. Not a very popular day, and most grandparents probably don’t even know that this day exists. But wouldn’t it be a treat for your grandmother or grandfather if you make a surprise visit with a little gift to show your appreciation for them.
If you are a grandparent, take this time to celebrate your day with your grandchild/children, and show them how much you love being their grandma/pa.
HAVE A HAPPY GRANDPARENTS’ DAY!
