Contrary to popular belief, holidays are a great time to find a job. This is because of two main reasons. One, many employers continue their search for the right candidates for vacancies during the holidays. Two, holidays provide an excellent opportunity to network your way to a new job. Hiring and personnel activities continue at all times of year because competitive pressures, markets growth and strategic changes do not take a break.
Many job seekers slow down their job search between Thanksgiving and New Years. Do not be one of them and take this time as an opportunity to connect with employers who might be looking for the right candidates to fill in vacant job positions.
In case the holiday season is slow, you can take advantage of the vacation time to schedule networking meetings. Accept all invitations to parties and other social events, especially those from your professional network. You never know who might prove to be a great help in your job search.
