Your Job Search Over the Christmas Period
Get ahead and use the Christmas period to kick-start your job search. It might seem like everyone else is getting merry but use your downtime wisely because we all know that finding the time to look for a job while in a job is a hard task.
Not only this, but the New Year (especially the end of January) sees a surge of job applications and that means just one thing. More competition. The motto of this story? Stay motivated and dedicate time to:
1. Your CV.
2. Preparing cover letter templates. A word of advice – company end-of-year newsletters, blog posts and the like are great talking points.
3. Your interview skills.
What’s more, with time on your hands, why not reach out to your network and consider how you can grow it? Wish your existing contacts well and look for new contacts in similar fields/positions who might have fantastic pools of knowledge that they could share with you. Naturally, be wary not to reach out to your contacts only when you need help.
The last word? Take time out to think about your New Year career aspirations, identify what you want to achieve and get applying. Let’s make 2020 the best one yet!
