Are you seriously looking for a new job, but figure you can put aside your job search until after the holidays, because it’s not a good time to land a job?
The holidays are one of the BEST times to land a job, or make strides toward landing first thing in the New Year . . . mostly because so many job seekers think it’s one of the WORST times.
They put things on hold until the New Year, leaving many year-end opportunities unclaimed . . . and available for you to swoop in and grab.
If you job hunt during the holiday season, you’ll have much less competition.
Guide To Help You Land a Job During the Holidays
A few years ago, I collaborated with Susan P. Joyce, online job search guru and publisher of Job-Hunt.org, to create a Kindle ebook loaded with juicy tips from the Job-Hunt Experts, to help you navigate a job search over the holiday season.
We’ve updated the ebook for this holiday season.

Described by Reader’s Digest as “vacuum-packed with solid advice,” Job-Hunt.org offers thousands of pages of resources and information for job seekers trying to succeed in this tough job market, and trying to learn how to navigate through this new 21st Century technology.
More than 1,200 original articles by Job-Hunt’s Experts have been published on Job-Hunt. These people are genuine experts in their fields. Each Expert writes monthly articles in their area of expertise – columns on Job-Hunt that cover topics ranging from personal branding, personal SEO, using LinkedIn and other social media for job search to working with recruiters and having the best resume possible. Job-Hunt Experts also cover “niche” topics like IT Job Search, Job Search for Introverts, Job Search for Veterans, and International Job Search.
Ten years ago, Susan asked me to be Job-Hunt’s Personal Branding Expert. Since then I’ve written dozens of articles for Job-Hunt about various aspects of personal branding and job search.
Among the current and former Job-Hunt Experts, 27 contributed the 101+ tips for this book.
Here’s a really helpful tip from Phyllis Mufson, Job-Hunt’s Boomer Job Search Expert:
“Have your personal business cards ready for holiday networking.
They’re a handy aid for people you’re talking with to remember you, your skills, and the position you’re seeking. The simplest card will have your name and phone number, plus email and LinkedIn address. More effective will be to add the role you seek, for example: Child Welfare Social Work, and / or brief descriptions of a few of your strongest skills such as: advocacy, case management, volunteer supervision. You can easily make the cards on your computer using a package of the inexpensive snap-off cards available in office supply stores.”
