Happy Thanksgiving, and welcome to the Holiday Season. Many people say that this time of year is the worst time to make a career change, but don’t believe it. This is a great time to look for that next opportunity. You have a built-in excuse to contact friends, acquaintances, recruiters, hiring managers, and people in your network. Wish them all a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, a prosperous New Year, or a Season’s Greetings. Send out an email, or better yet, a card with an update on your search.
Why start your search at the end of the year? Companies this time of year are trying to use up budget or are ramping up for a position that starts in January. Use these lesser-known points to strike up conversation with people in your network and find out what companies are planning for the new year--and your your skills could be beneficial.
Don’t waste the opportunity to get in front of people who can help you search. Recruiters at Anchor Point would love to hear from you. Give us an update, send a new resume, or just call to say hi. You never know when that right email, card or call will generate the offer of a lifetime, so don’t miss out this holiday season.
