Job hunt now? You bet!
Indeed, I have a friend who just landed a great new job and gets to end 2006 knowing she'll be making more money and cut her commute time in 2007. So if you’re wondering how to get a jump on the competition AND get your resume noticed during the holidays, consider these tips from Monster:
· Work the Holiday Events: Whether you’re attending an employer-sponsored party or holiday networking event, make the most of social gatherings by planning in advance. Set a goal to meet, connect with and learn from three to five people at an event.
· Follow Up: After the event, send a handwritten, personalized thank-you note to each contact, including a copy of your resume, if appropriate.
· Keep Your Network Going: Find creative ways to stay on your contacts’ radar screens. Set a search engine alert - research your contacts and their interests, and stay in touch that way.
