Job Hunting During the Holidays

Share

Despite what some of you may think job hunting during the holiday season is not such a bad thing. Here are a few simple tips to help you succeed in your job search and enjoy the holiday season all at the same time.

Be Patient

You should try to remember that some decision makers may take some days off during the holiday season. If you apply for a position and don’t hear back right away, don’t panic. Just remember to be a little more patient and give the employer extra time to respond to your application. You can always follow up after the New Year.

Perfect your voicemail greeting

Your voicemail greeting is no small detail. If employers call you regarding your application for a job and you can’t pick up the phone, you have to make sure your voicemail greeting is professional and makes a good first impression on your behalf. It would be unfortunate if the employer gets a bad impression of you from you greeting and this affects your chances of getting a job.

Be Persistent

Don’t take time off from your search. Make a plan on what you’re going to do each day, to help you continue your job search. This may be a good time to research companies you are interested in and would like to contact after the New Year.

Don’t forget to network

The holidays are a time when a lot of people are attending events and reunions. If you are invited to events hosted by your family or friends, make sure you rehearse your elevator pitch; you never know who you’ll meet. This could be a great opportunity for you to chat about your job search and career goals and add some new connections to your network.

Enjoy the season

Searching for the perfect job shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the holiday season. Take some time for yourself to relax and spend with your family and friends. Enjoy the celebrations that are part of this time of the year.
