    I recently graduated from university with first class honours and having been in education most of my life and already worked for a year - I feel that I deserve a break on holiday somewhere.

    The thing is, I have not been applying for any jobs and my family are telling me not to go now as they require some assistance from me. So I am planning to go end of August as a result and it is cheaper for me too.

    Thing is, will this negatively affect me? I want to get a graduate job and I don't mind starting in October - or should I not go on holiday at all?

    It is a tough situation and I wished I went in June

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    You should definitely go for a holiday but as soon as possible as the season for searching for a career will start soon in September.
    The best adventure options are: Pakistan mountain hike and Russia adventure tours (Chechnya, Baikal, far North)

    Thanks - this is reassuring to say the least.

    I am planning to go on holiday towards the end of August and come back end of September.

    Will I still have a chance?

    to my experience and according to a general knowledge, the most active business season is Sep-Dec. So as long as you search for a job before Christmas, that's fine

    Yes I plan on getting a job after September.

    I just feel that I would be in the right mental state to work after a holiday as I feel that my mind is more important than anything else.

    I never knew they recruited after September though

    Congratulations. *That is awesome. *You deserve a holiday. It shouldn't be a problem and in my opinion you will be in a good frame of mind to put in a good application and perform well at interviews.*

    No, of course, they recruit all around year but just generally all the business activities are mostly done in Sep-Dec period : sales, making new partnerships, contracts etc.
    Summer is the lowest point for all activities except tourist and construction industries
