One of the biggest mistakes a job seeker can make is to let the holiday season distract them from their job search! Use the following tips to make sure you keep your job search moving forward and end the year strong.


1. Make A Schedule and Stick to It

One of the easiest ways to stay accountable and on track is to make a schedule.  Get a daily planner and book appointments with yourself at a specific time each day of the week for online research, reaching out to leads, making follow up calls, etc. 

2. Networking

The holiday season presents unique networking opportunities that are not available at other times during the year.  While there might not be any jobs available for you right now, increasing your number of connections through holiday parties and other networking events will increase the number of people you know, thus increasing your chances of landing a job later on!

Start your search for these events in early December and make note of them in your calendar.

3. Volunteer

Community service opportunities skyrocket during the holiday season.  Volunteering is a great way to help those less fortunate during the holiday season and to get to know your fellow volunteers.  Organizations generally draw volunteers from all sorts of career fields so you never know who you may come across and how they could possibly help you in your job search.

4. Keep Moving Forward

Don’t be afraid to take a few days off during the holiday break, but always make sure you stay focused on your goal of finding new employment!
