Despite colder temperatures, many job seekers regard the holiday season the same way they do the summer. They see it as another opportunity to take a break from job hunting. A time to sit back and enjoy the festivities.
As with relaxing in the summer, this is a big mistake.
As tempting as it may be, if you’re looking for a new job, this is not the time to slack off.
If anything, this is the time to ramp up your job search.
One of the best things about looking for a new opportunity during the holiday season is that most of your competition is on hiatus. They mistakenly think that no one finds a job during the holidays. For this reason they scale back their efforts.
