TIPS FOR SEARCH FOR A NEW JOB DURING THE HOLIDAYS


1. IT'S TIME FOR HOLIDAY GREETINGS, USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Sending a holiday or New Year greeting card to networking contacts, recruiters, and employers with whom you have interviewed is another way to connect with those who can help with your job search.

2. USE THE DOWN TIME

If you're working at a company where the holiday season is a slow one, take advantage of this time to job search. If you have vacation days that need to be used, schedule some networking meetings. It's an ideal time of year to connect with acquaintances you haven't been in touch with in a while, both to celebrate the holiday season and to let them know you're in the market for a job. If you have extra time, you can use it to update your resume, refresh your LinkedIn profile, or create a portfolio.

3. ATTEND PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING EVENTS

If you are attending a holiday social event, it is definitely appropriate to mention that you are job searching. Accept all the invitations you receive, both personal and professional. You never know who may be able to help. Friends and family, as well as business acquaintances, are typically more than happy to assist.

4. CONNECT

Send an email or use a professional or social networking site, such as LinkedIn or Facebook, to get in touch. The holiday season is a great excuse to touch base and a good time to reinforce or expand your network.
