How to get through the holidays when you’re job hunting

How to get through the holidays when you’re job hunting


Think the holidays are a bad time to job hunt? Think again. Most companies slow down between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, so hiring managers actually have more time to spend with job seekers. Come January, companies usually start hiring. The quicker you get in front of employers prior to then, the better your chances for landing a job.

December also is a good time to refine your resume, continue networking and do your research. So if you’re thinking about slowing down, don’t. In fact, speed up. Let others take a break from the search.
