Job hunting during the holidays

Should you wait until the New Year or should you start now? Here some tips both for employees and employers.

Between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, companies are focused on end-of-year activities. So, some people think the holiday season is not a great time to job hunt. They decide to defer their job search activity until after the first of the year. Is that a good idea or not?

If you’re unsure about whether to continue your job search over Christmas, here are a 5 reasons that can help you make your mind!


1) There’s less competition

A lot of job seekers will put a halt to their job search over the holiday period, due to their busy schedules or the false impression that companies will not be hiring over Christmas. So if you’re looking for a job in a competitive field, now is your time to get one up on your competition, while the number of applicants is down.


2)There is always the opportunity

If you stop looking during the next three or four weeks, you may lose out on any number of opportunities. They could pass you by because you aren’t actively looking. Don’t lose your momentum. Keep up the hunt even during a time when it feels like everyone’s attention is on the holidays and the end of the year.


3) Temporary positions may lead to permanent placements.

Some companies hire temporary workers at this time of year. But if you do a great job, they will want to keep you if they can. You may even get a different job from the one you did temporarily. But it will be the result of your willingness to take a temporary position first. And if it isn’t possible for you to stay, you may be able to get a great recommendation. It will be time well spent if you get an introduction to someone in another company that results in a new job.


4) Reconnect with existing contacts

The holiday season is a good opportunity to touch base with old networking contacts, recruiters and previous employers to wish them happy holidays, as well as provide them with a little reminder that you exist. Dropping them a line on LinkedIn or arranging a catch up could lead to progress in your job search.


5)Time to Project hiring plans for 2021

Heads of department within any company will project what their hiring plans will be for Q1 – Q4 well in advance so that the yearly budget for hires can be approved by the Finance Director. Any hard-won hiring budget will need to be utilised at year-end to ensure a similar hiring budget can be secured for the following year.

However, recruitment doesn’t always manage to follow the carefully outlined plans. Some hires may take longer to recruit than others, whilst some candidates hired may end up not being the right fit for the business. This will mean that by the time the end of the year comes around, there can still be plenty of budget left for new hires, and hiring managers on the lookout for fresh talent.

Here some tips to be productive when working remotely with kids.

Things are changing quickly every day, and most of us have seen our typical routines turned upside down. More and more workplaces are allowing or requiring remote work, while school and daycare closings and “social distancing” restrictions mean that whole families are suddenly spending a whole lot more time at home together.

That means many working parents are facing an unprecedented situation: working from home with kids and without access to the camps, babysitters, playdates, and even Grandma-dates that you might normally rely on to get through a school break or a snow day.

It won’t be smooth or perfect, but there are a few strategies you can use to make your new situation a little easier.

How will I keep my kids entertained and up-to-date on their schoolwork — all while working from home? It is a question many parents asked themselves time and time again

If you’re a parent facing the prospect of keeping up with your job and home-schooling at the same time, here’s some tips that can help you.

1.Create a designated learning space

Living and learning under the same roof can quickly lead to disorganization and chaos
To avoid confusion, keep your children’s study materials organized and designate a specific learning hub—a space where they keep supplies and books. Even if your kids end up doing work at the kitchen table, it helps to keep their things organized in one space. Once they are done with their schoolwork, have them return their materials to their designated space.
Another thing that can help is posting a printed schedule at their hub so they always know what tasks need to get done and what goals they’re working on that day or week. 

2. Follow a daily schedule

A clear structure is important to avoid to get distracted and go off track.
Kids thrive when they have a basic structure and routine. Consider creating and following a daily schedule. You can always adapt, but a schedule will give you focus and direction each day.

3. Set learning goals together

Work together to set learning goals broken down by year, semester, and month. This is also a great opportunity to teach your child goal-setting skills and best practices

4. Work During Naps (If Possible)

If your kid is still napping, that gives you some kid-free time to buckle down and get stuff done. Use this time to do the things that require the most concentration.

5. Take Turns With Your Partner (If Possible)

If you have a partner and they’re also working remotely, that’s a real advantage because you’ll be able to take turns watching your kid(s). If you both have jobs that involve a lot of meetings, try to split up your day so that one of you only takes morning meetings and the other only takes afternoon meetings. That way, one of you will always be available in case of a kid-related emergency.

6. Delegate tasks from your company

If you are looking to expand your company, but with all the tasks of your house and the children you do not have time, you can delegate some of the tasks.
Delegation skills and strategies will reduce your stress level.

Whether you’re seeking to fast-track hiring or looking to expand locally or internationally, EOR ROOTS has the proven expertise to get your workers up and running quickly. With our Employer of Record service, you recruit your talent, anywhere in the world, and let us take care of the rest. Contact us here

Why hiring and recruitment during Covid Is different than before?

The pandemic has sparked innovations in recruiting and employing.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a lot about the way we work. One notable change is that we’ve had to migrate to working online, and as such we’ve adapted our hiring and onboarding practices to meet this challenge. As this situation is still very new, you may have questions as to how you can apply, how to hire new people, how interviews, assessments, and potential onboardings work.

Looking for a new job is uniquely difficult during the coronavirus outbreak because many organizations are laying off employees and traditional ways of hiring have also been disrupted.

While the future of the job market remains unpredictable, what is certain is that how workers are hired has changed. Starting with the interview process.

And this technological transition brings a new host of best practices that applicants need to consider during an interview. Additionally, applicants need to consider how their body language comes across on screen, especially since being at home can lure them into a false sense of informality.

Applicants need to give themselves additional time before an interview to adjust to the technology, and they should consider factors such as audio settings, camera settings and internet connection strength. The technological transition from in-person to online interviews is expected to be bumpy for many workers and employers.

Interviewing via a Google Hangout is a lot different than meeting in person, we have collected some tips from this new normal of video job-hunting:


Standard Rules Still Apply: Just because you’re on video doesn’t mean you can be in your pyjamas. Dress one notch above what the company’s typical attire is.


Eliminate Distractions: Close the door and windows in your room. Shut off the TV down the hall. Silence your cell phone.


Find a Neutral Background: The most common advice: Set yourself up against a completely blank background (one that doesn’t clash with your shirt)gs.


Prioritize the Camera, Not the Screen: That means prioritizing the device with the best camera in your possession, not the best display. The quality difference used for Zoom meeting is massive and immediately apparent. The challenge with using a phone for a videoconference is that it must remain absolutely still.


Keep Your Eyes Forward: During your interview you should look at the camera as much as possible, not the picture of the other person on the screen. Looking at the camera is as close as you can get to making eye contact with the interviewer, while looking at the screen will appear to the other side like you’re staring off into space.


Make a Cheat Sheet: Remember that the interviewer can’t see what’s not on camera, so use your interview space to your advantage. Stick a Post-It Note cheat sheet with notes, questions, or needed inspiration directly to the screen or to the wall behind your camera. The interviewer on the other side won’t ever know.

We’d love to tell you that the recruitment process is as simple as posting a job and then choosing the best among the candidates who flow right in. Here’s a secret: it really can be that simple, because we’ve simplified it for you. How? Contact us here

Should start-ups hire permanent employees or contract resources?

Should start-ups hire permanent employees or contract resources?

Benefits every employer should know about EOR
What are advantages and disadvantages of each one? Let’s take a look.

When you’re starting a new company, hiring employees can be a difficult task. Most of the start-ups begin their business by hiring contracted workers and later hiring some permanent employees. It that the best thing to do?

Hiring Permanent Employees

The key advantage here for startups is the fact that they have complete control to direct the employee’s schedule, training, and require the individual to only work for you. Permanent staff come with loads of state and federal regulations. This means that you have to follow regulations when it comes to salaries, overtime, and other aspects of employment that fall under the law. Startups will also have to deal with payroll taxes and pay Social Security and Medicare, worker’s compensation insurance, and unemployment insurance for each member of staff.

Hiring independent contractors or consultants

An independent contractor (or consultant) is typically someone who can provide you with short-term, niche expertise to support your business decisions. They can be anything from a sounding board to your project leader. Whatever your requirements, there is expertise available, locally or globally.

Hiring independent contractors can help to eliminate overhead costs like employee benefits, training programs, and supplies. And because they often work on a project-by-project basis, this gets rid of the need for a long term commitment. That means it’s easy to switch up who you’re working with if things don’t work out.

However, the reality behind the rhetoric is often quite different and many contractors receive orders and must comply with a specific schedule and deadlines. Furthermore, they have to invoice every month with correlative invoices, this configures a certain risk of a disguised dependency relationship. It is important to mention that this risk depends and varies on the country you are working in.


The Difference Between Contractors and Employees

The main difference between contractors and employees is that contractors are in business for themselves. Therefore, when you hire a contractor to help you out, you are essentially paying them to perform a specific service for you on their own time using their own resources.

They are also responsible for declaring taxes on their own personal income. On the other hand, if you hire your own employee, you are responsible for taking care of and paying a bunch of taxes. In short, when hiring a contractor, the paperwork burden is on the contractor and not on your business. For this reason, it can be very useful for many companies to hire an independent contractor to guide you to the best possible decision.
