Many people seeking employment stop or slow down in the job search process around the holidays. Of the many reasons cited for this slowdown is the myth that employers are too busy and not hiring during the holidays.
In fact, this is the time of year to be the most active in your job search. Because many people stop their job search activities throughout the holidays it is the prime opportunity for you to be one step ahead of the competition. By ensuring that you continue to actively seek employment and submitting “cold” resume applications you are showing a prospective employer how dedicated you are!
In addition, because many job seekers have taken a break from job hunting during the holidays you can be assured that you will be one of the first to apply for a position. No longer will you be competing with hundreds of applicants… but instead only the few dedicated job seekers such as yourself!
My advice to you is to maximize this time of year to benefit your career! Continue your job search throughout the holidays and maybe Santa will bring you a NEW job for Christmas!!!!
