The holiday season is one of the most stressful times of the year. To me, it shouldn't be but it typically is and when looking for work, it tends to add another layer of stress to it. Things to consider when looking for a job during this time are the following: Recruiters and hiring managers, who may already be difficult to reach, are often out of the office for extended periods of time and businesses tend to move at a slower pace.
Adrienne Tom, a job search strategist, offered some survival tips for job seekers in the latest edition of #GetHired.
1. Keep searching and applying
2. Leverage holiday gatherings
3. Take advantage of the quiet
4. Have patience
