As the holiday season begins just after thanksgiving, many job hunters put their search on the back burner until January. However, according to Forbes writer, Megan Casserly, the best time to conduct a job search and network is over the holiday season. It seems as though some forget that the holiday season spans around six weeks, which is valuable time to be job searching, according to Casserly. Networking and job searching over the holidays is said to be the most beneficial, as employers and potential mentors are in higher, more charitable spirits. Kathy Harris, a managing director at Harris Allied, added insight on job searching over the holiday season, adding “It’s smart, it really is. This is the time of year when people are at their most social, their most magnanimous, and conversation is naturally positive. That’s a win-win.” See the full article: Five Reasons to Job Hunt During the Holidays.
