How To Get A Job by hienyimba(m): 11:42pm On Dec 10, 2012
Many people believe job searching between December and New Year’s Eve is unadvisable, but this is a huge misinterpretation! This is a great time for job seekers because companies don’t just stop working during the holiday season. Plus, it puts you at an advantage among other job seekers because many people don’t look for jobs around the end of the year.
Here are some important tips on how to search for jobs during the holiday season:

Be Flexible
Many companies try to hire candidates before the end of the year, so it is important to remain flexible during the interview process . Another reason to stay flexible is because hiring managers will be out of the office for different events, personal time, and holiday activities. If you demonstrate you can work around these speed bumps, then you will be good to go!

Stay Focused On Your Social Media Accounts
Just because it is the holiday season doesn’t mean you should forget about your Facebook, Twitter, or Yolpe pages! These are great ways to connect with people and could be helpful in finding networking events.

Attend Networking Parties Or Events
Speaking of networking events…between December and New Year’s Eve, there are plenty of opportunities! No matter where you’re going, whether it is a party with friends or family, your children’s end of year school party, you should think of it as a good chance to get your name out there. You never know who you could meet! Keep your options open. Hint: Always have business cards on you so you can hand them out.

Send A Holiday Card
An old-fashioned, personal way to reach out to employers or networking contacts is by sending a holiday card. If you have recently interviewed with someone, send him or her a holiday card — and don’t forget to say “thank you” for taking time out of his or her busy schedule to meet with you. You should also send cards to those individuals who have helped you network.
Above all, do not forget to relax and enjoy this time of year!
Do you think it is a good idea to continue your job search during the holiday season? Why or why not? Let us know in your comments.
