Holiday Season Job Searching Tips

By December 2, 2013

If your plan is to put your job search on hold until the holidays are over, think again. The holidays are actually a great time to hunt for a new job. You can use holiday events to network, spend some time revamping your resume, and build a personal brand that you can use online to attract employers.

The holidays are a terrific time for double-purpose connecting - wishing your contacts "Happy Holidays" and reminding them that you're in the market for a new job. Send a holiday greeting card, as well as messages on LinkedIn and Facebook to all your connections and friends.

There's also less competition for available jobs during the holidays and if you're available to interview, you'll be more competitive than those candidates who are taking a break and quitting their job search until next year.

Here's how to give your job search a boost during the holidays.
