Getting a job in December….are you worried that you need to put your job search on hold until January? The holiday season has commenced! Thanksgiving is becoming a vague memory, a tryptophan-obscured day of turkey and football.
Black Friday has been shopped and Cyber Monday is slowly tapering off.
The weeks leading up to New Year’s often seem compressed and jam-packed with activity. Focus on work seems to wane as people plan for family visits, feasts with friends and festivities related to their jobs or professions. If you are seeking employment or looking to change jobs, this time of year often feels like a lost cause. You’re too busy or, if you’re not, those that do the hiring usually are. At least, that’s what you’ve come to expect.
Lost in the holiday hullabaloo is the fact that getting a job in December is actually a very real possibility. There are indeed some great opportunities in December to network, to generate job leads and to actually engage in a job search that has the potential of generating positive results. Here are some things to remember:
December is a month associated with good cheer. Why, then, should you feel gloomy about your prospects of finding job leads during the holiday season? Getting a job in December is a real possibility! Continue working toward your job search goals.
