Should I apply for FT recruiting before or after I start my job?
I've recently graduated from university this past summer. I'm currently due to start a non-consulting role in the first week of October but I'm planning on doing full time recruiting for a consulting role in 2022. Most companies have just opened their applications and have a deadline around mid-October.
I'm contemplating between applying in September vs October.
+: Early in the recruitment cycle + companies with rolling deadlines won't be full
-: less experience I can put on my CV + it would look like I'm unemployed (would this heavily detract from my application?)
+: Get to put relevant experience in
-: rolling deadline might become full?
Would greatly appreciate any advice
