The holiday season can be a difficult time for those who are between jobs. It can be easy to become discouraged and lose hope in finding a job before the new year.
However, there are ways to maintain your job search and still enjoy the festive season.
- Instead of spending hours refreshing job boards, set specific times for job searching and resume review. This could be an hour per day where you intentionally look for new job opportunities and tailor your CV for each application. Use LinkedIn to connect with relevant connections and build a network that works in your favor.
- Take time to review your strengths and accomplishments from the past year. It’s easy to get lost in the job search and forget to celebrate your successes. Consider journaling your wins and spending time reflecting on them.
- Don’t forget to spend time with friends and family. The holiday season is a great time to connect with loved ones and share in each other’s lives. Go out for dinner, play with kids, and enjoy the company of those who matter most to you.
It may seem bleak now, but remember that you will soon be back on your feet. Keep working towards your goals and celebrate your successes along the way.
Happy Holidays 🎊🎁
