If you're getting ready to relax and enjoy 4th of July weekend, take a few minutes to plan ahead and, in addition to getting ready for a holiday weekend party, consider how you can integrate job search networking into your upcoming events.
It's perfectably acceptable to let people you meet at a party or another event know that you're job seeking.
Networking isn't as hard as you might think - it's just a matter of mentioning your job search at the appropriate time. Most people are happy to help, but they can't help if they don't know that you're actively job seeking and in the market for a new position.
