With Christmas and the New Year holidays approaching, many people will decide to put their job search process on hold. This would be a mistake.
- First, there is less competition as others are taking the holidays off.
- Next, with the start of the new year, we’ll see a jump in open positions as budgets are approved for Jan-Dec fiscal year projects and organizations.
- Finally, the holidays are a great time to informational interview with family, and family friends.
So don’t stop your informational interviewing now. In fact, double down during the holidays. Make sure you are perfectly positioned now for the job opportunities that will come forth in January.
