Why Spring is the best time of year to start a CIM Marketing Qualification course of study?
We’re already three months into a new year.
How are those new year resolutions, career plans or new business ideas progressing?
The first part of the year has gone fast and it may be that things have not moved forward as you’d like. Global events are moving fast and it’s easy to not push when there is so many pressure in the macro environment.
You have a few options:
- Shrug it off and blame external forces.
- Make a plan to re-commit to your goals but put it off to the summer or even later in the year, accepting that’s your dreams are on hold for another year.
- Re-commit to getting back on track quickly and make the most of the rest of the year.
Spring is an excellent time to re-commit to making decisive change in your career and personal development.
Here’s five reasons why you should take the leap now!
1. You can still achieve whatever you want this year!
OK, even if it’s been a pretty flat three months, you can still achieve incredible things. If you’re looking to add a professional qualification and are prepared to work, you could complete a CIM course before Christmas. Chartered Institute of Marketing courses through MMC Learning are delivered online across three modules, so the only hold up is yours.
2. British summertime is right around the corner
For our British students, the arrival of brighter mornings and nights are the perfect antidote to the winter blues. Between October and March there is a tendency to get home, shut the curtains and hunker down. Studying is harder because the motivation is so much lower. But longer lighter days, and more sunshine give an instant boost and are far more likely to stimulate action. Maximise the summer months by enrolling on a course now and getting a great deal. Hit us up on the website chat.
3. Spring is going to be more productive than summer
Let’s be honest, when summer lands proper, your mind is going to be on other things, other places. But let’s be real here, now is the time to get a massive head start now.
Why? If you procrastinate on big decisions, you may decide to leave it to the summer. Then holiday vibes will land and any major development in the summer invariably means leaving it to September when “all the schools are back” or worse January “as it’s a new year”. So you’ve lost the year because you didn’t start now.
4. There’s more time to study
Naturally earlier starts and lighter days without all the holiday procrastination make Spring the best time to invest in yourself. And the period from late March to late September throws up a number of national holidays, long weekends and more opportunities to batch your work and move confidently through any course of study.
5. Grab unused training budget
If your company runs on the April-to April financial year (in line with the UK tax year), you’ve got a great opportunity to grab any unused training budget now to secure a place on your preferred course.
And even if you can’t, putting a plan together to start as soon as the new year kicks in on 6th April, you’ll still be able to set a plan and access a great deal and make something of the rest of the year.
Bonus: Staying ahead of the competition
The act of starting a course changes your mindset, shows your commitment and can be used in critical salary, promotion or new job interview situations. It marks you out as a person of value and we see lots of students negotiating future advancements long before they get their certificate.
If you’re already minded to want to improve yourself and start studying, don’t procrastinate and wait until the summer, September or even January.
