If you are in the market for a job, the holidays can be a time to get the gift of employment! Here are 3 Job Search Tips for the Holidays.
ASK FOR THE INFO – Tell friends and family how thankful you are for them. You could even go further and ask them to keep you in mind for open positions. I suggest sending a well-crafted email that includes your resume, letting everyone know the type of position you are looking for.
BE THE PLUS 1 – When you get the invite to be a plus 1 in for your friend’s holiday parties, think twice before you say no! This is a great way to network! I’m not saying you need to have your resumes in hand but… Be prepared to ask for a business card or two if conversation goes in a direction of an open position.
DON'T STOP APPLYING – Although companies are running on holiday time, they will still schedule interviews and accept applications. Don’t stop applying! Consider that you may not hear back from employers with a final decision in the same time frame but don’t let this slow your job search momentum.
