Looking For A Job? - Let The Holidays Work For You

Have you taken a deep sigh of relief that the scurry of holiday gift shopping, cooking, parties, overeating, overspending, obligatory family dinners is almost over?  Hold off, we still have the New Year to ring in.  Time seems like it's moving faster this year and I can't seem to catch my breath.  Are you experiencing the same thing?

It's easy to get caught up in the magic of the holidays and put the important stuff in the "to do" pile.   Does this sound like you?  It's definitely me. If you're looking for a job, it's quite the  challenge getting into "job search mode" in December.  However, the holiday is a great time to reconnect with people you haven't been in touch with.  Invite an old friend, former colleague or client for some holiday cheer and let them know you're looking to make a career transition (whatever that may be).  Don't be afraid to ask for their help.  More than likely, they would ask if they were in your shoes.  People feel good knowing they've made a difference in someone's life.  Isn't that what the holidays are all about?
