Job hunt­ing through the hol­i­days

Lesotho Times - - Jobs & Tenders -

CAN I tell you a lit­tle se­cret? Smart peo­ple keep job hunt­ing through the hol­i­days.

Smart peo­ple re­al­ize a few things about job hunt­ing through the hol­i­days: There is less com­pe­ti­tion Hir­ing man­agers are still look­ing HR pro­fes­sion­als get to pick from a very smart and se­lect group Fam­ily will un­der­stand Your friends and fam­ily will un­der­stand and ap­pre­ci­ate that you are ac­tively on the job hunt. If you need to jump out of a fam­ily gath­er­ing to make a phone call or per­haps even make a quick trip to a job site or a city you’re in­ter­ested in. Trust me, they’ll un­der­stand. Just keep swim­ming Of course this is a fa­mous line from Dory in Find­ing Nemo. Her phi­los­o­phy works well for job hunt­ing too. Some­times even though the wa­ters might be get­ting deep and dark and a lit­tle scary you need to… just keep swim­ming. Keep your en­ergy up While it may seem like ev­ery­one else is out hav­ing fun and en­joy­ing the hol­i­days your cur­rent job is to find a job. While you con­tinue that hunt you need to make sure you keep your en­ergy up. Eat right, ex­er­cise and get some sleep. You’ll be ready to dive right in when that hir­ing man­ager calls. Keep your ef­fort up With­out a doubt peo­ple will be tak­ing va­ca­tions and breaks at this time of the year. How­ever, by be­ing dili­gent and smart about your job hunt you can stay top of mind and ready to hit the ground run­ning when some­one re­al­izes you are still look­ing and avail­able.

Keep­ing these points in mind will help you stand out in your ca­reer. Even though you might be kick­start­ing or ex­pand­ing your ca­reer you will be in a se­lect group of peo­ple that re­al­ize the ben­e­fits of con­tin­u­ing the job search through the hol­i­days. These ef­forts will help you now and in the fu­ture to stand out in your ca­reer.
