It's easy to get caught up in holiday fever this time of year, concentrating on family, travel plans, holiday decor, and all the traditional festivities. But for those in the know, there's another form of "magic" in the air this season--because the holidays are PERFECT for job hunting. Don't believe anyone who tells you to just lie low until January, and that employers don't hire right now.
I am glad that my husband is finding a job now than waiting till his work is over in February. He was lucky enough and has gotten few job interviews. We are praying that he will be lucky and get a job before the end of the year. I hope that this article below that I got from the internet will work with us.
Each year, there are plenty of reasons that the holidays are the best time for a job search, including these 3 advantages:
1.) There's a TON less competitionfor jobs--even this year.
Don't tell your peers, but the law of probability is at work during the holiday season. With less applicants in circulation, you'll gain a much stronger reception from employers.
2.) Ample networking opportunities are everywhere.
Your next job lead could come from the literally dozens of people you can meet--some of them key decision-makers, or those with access to them--at holiday events.
3.) End-of-year budgets and hiring needs are all working in your favor.
While the myths abound as to how employers don't hire during the holiday season, many still have business needs (some even more so) during the last 2 months of the year.
Continue to market your skills and network with the end goal in mind, and you could find yourself ringing in the New Year while starting a new job.
