The approaching holidays don’t mean you need to ice your job search. Employers are often preparing for a new year, or replacing an employee who left. And there are many opportunities to connect and discuss your job hunt with people on a casual basis, at neighborhood parties and family gatherings.
Take the time to sharpen your resume, as potential employers experiencing a holiday lull might be more open to meeting with strong candidates. And with fewer people actively seeking employment, the odds are in your favor.
Ask for advice, connections and resume critiques while people are in the giving spirit!
