Holding off Recruitment until September : Is it wise ?

Holding off Recruitment Until September: Is it a Wise Move?  

Our clients and partners in the industry are echoing the same message: companies are holding off on recruitment until September. ⬇️ Three of our talent acquisition experts/directors take a closer look at this situation and give their take.

It’s summertime, and candidates aren’t active or paying attention. 

“That’s not entirely true! 

We can all agree that those currently relaxing on a beach far from Quebec (home) won’t immediately respond to messages received through LinkedIn. However, they won’t receive a ton during this period, which means your opportunity will undoubtedly stand out! 

Are you planning for September? Well, guess what? Candidates are too! September is often a time of renewal, with job seekers actively tuning into the market. It’s also a busier period for many, especially parents (ah, back-to-school season!). If they are eager to change jobs, they’ll want to get ahead of the game. 

Clever candidates are already contemplating their next professional challenge – seize the opportunity to contact them before everyone else does!”  

-Valérie Saint-Pierre, Director of Talent Acquisition at Caméléon. 

I’m going on vacation next week. 

” Well, it’s the perfect time to kick off recruitment initiatives. While you’re making the most of your summer, you’ll give us time to research, network, contact, and even meet candidates!   

A piece of advice: set aside a few time slots for your first week back; you’ll need them to meet the candidates our team has carefully hand-picked for you during your vacation 😉“  

-Sylvie Jacinto, Director of Talent Acquisition at Caméléon. 

It’s quieter these days, but things will pick up in September. 

Are you planning to hire in September? Don’t wait until the last week of August to start your recruitment efforts, when all your competitors will also be on the lookout for new talent. 

In autumn, your teams will likely be busier than they are now. Take advantage of this calm period to find great candidates, and to offer your new recruits a fantastic, seamless onboarding experience.   

By the time September comes, they’ll be fully integrated and thus able to significantly alleviate the workload of your current teams! 👀 Bonus: With the superb onboarding you’ll provide, you’ll boost their productivity, retention, and commitment to your company!” ”  

-Annie Massé, Director of Talent Acquisition at Caméléon.
