It’s true that hiring often (but not always) slows at the end of the year, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great time to find a job. Why? The best way to find a job is through networking, and the festive holiday times mean you’re inundated with opportunities to talk with people.
Yep. Your spouse’s office party, the church Christmas pageant, the winter carnival at your child’s school, the neighbor’s party, and even your annual family get together at Aunt Joyce’s house are all opportunities to network. Oh, and one other opportunity to network? Your own company holiday party (if you’re currently employed).
