Job seeker: Oh! It's the yuletide season. All I have to do is; hang out with friends and eat all I can.
Reply: As a job seeker, you should be purposeful in your job search this yuletide season. At tines, we tend to throw caution to the wind with the mindset that the holidays are for resting and hanging out. That mindset needs adjustment because the holidays are a good time of the year to find a job. One observation a job seeker should make is that job application advertisements are flowing in irrespective of the yuletide season. Therefore, you should not relent in your job search.
Employers are on the look out for prospective employees to fill specific positions and to "staff up", which will enable them to set the pace for the new year. Employers don't stop hiring because it is the holiday season. Vacation time might mean that your interviewers will be spread out over more time and they will have enough time to settle the recruitment process of the organization.
Also, a unique advantage of the yuletide season is that you meet many people. As a job seeker, you should not hold back from making a good impression and building profitable relationships. No man can achieve success as a loner. Profitable relationship is key to career fulfillment.
Every job seeker should note the following:
• Be active and not passive.
• Be interactive and not reserved.
However, be intentional and determined in your job search this yuletide season. Your dream job awaits you - go for it.
