People continue to be interviewed and hired, even during the holidays. “Many job seekers make the mistake of putting their job search on hold during the holidays on the assumption that no one’s hiring late in the year,” said a career consultant in California. However, those who stay in the game will have less competition and potentially better odds of landing a permanent paycheck. Explore the reasons why your job search can actually be easier during the holidays, and obtain tips for making the most of the holiday season while you’re in career transition.
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
