All I Want for Christmas Is A New Job
Christmas is the time of the year when things all around are bright, festive and cheery. It’s also that time of the year when you’re entitled to pull up your wish list and ask Santa for literally anything you want!
But if there’s one thing you won’t find under the Christmas tree, it is a new job.
While it’s always a good time to look for a new job, there is no time as good as Christmas.
The festive season typically witnesses a marked dip in the number of job applications. Jobseekers tend to believe that the beginning of the year is always a better time to apply for new jobs. But if you’re smart enough to get started early, you pave the way for plenty of career opportunities.
Here are 8 things that you can do to give your career a fresh start this festive season:
Rethink your career goals
Looking for a better role, better company or even your dream job? Don’t hesitate to aim for the stars.
Identify your skills and preferences
Identify what you’re good at and what you’re really looking for in a job.
Apply to the right companies
Make sure you apply to the places that will value you for what you have to offer.
Stay ahead of the race
By applying towards the end of this year, you’ll be among the first ones to be interviewed once the hiring process commences in full swing next year.
Prepare for the interview
Connect with the right people
The festive season means lots of events, parties and gatherings. This is your chance to meet new and meaningful people and talk about the kind of work you’re looking to do.
