Where are all the teaching jobs? It’s a question many graduates ask themselves. It seems like there are no teaching jobs for most of the year and then a sudden flurry of positions are being advertised around August and September. So what is going on and what are you supposed to do if you are looking for work or a promotion the rest of the year?
As 2019 approaches its end, the approaching New Year is often a time for review and reflecting on the achievements of the last twelve months.
Many find themselves taking stock, look at what they themselves have achieved and thinking about how they can make their lives better for their family and those around them. And some will contemplate a change of job, even a change of career. If so, freshening up your resume is a vital step in achieving that particular New Year resolution.
Christmas neatly divides job hunters into two distinct groups – those who down tools and relax for a well-earned rest, and those who use the period to focus on that job search that they never quite have the time for normally.

In this article, we will look at some other ways you can positively use your time whilst looking for a new position.
Struggling to find work when unemployed is the hardest profession there is. It requires self-motivation, planning, bravery and hard graft, while often being under pressure financially, emotionally and mentally. But there are a number of tactics you can employ that will help you remain focused and upbeat, while also improving your employment prospects.
For the lucky few, knowing how to delegate effectively – even at all – comes easily. For others who are perfectionists, letting go of even the most trivial task is an almost a Herculean task.
You cannot do everything yourself. And the bigger your business grows, the truer this becomes. That is why it is so essential to master the art of knowing how to delegate effectively.
Whether mental health days are seen as an added incentive to workers by employers identifying a need to be seen as an attractive proposition to employees, or recognising that the need for change around workplace mental health has been long overdue, the mental health day is here to stay.
