With the exception of the week between December 25th and January 1st, executive candidates should keep up the job search pace and not wait until January to initiate a new career campaign. So the answer is NO! Many opportunities may be missed during late November through December. You don’t want to kick yourself later saying. “I could have been hired, only if…..” Companies that are considering hiring campaigns in the new year (...
Standing Out in a Job Search
by Joshua Waldman - Dec, 2011
Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with defining who you are based on NOT being someone else. Let me explain. When I was in high school, I didn’t really stand out. Despite how hard I tried. Grew my hair long, dyed it green. Whatever it was I tried, it didn’t really work. I was still the quiet, unremarkable white kid in the back of the class.

by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
As a career coach, I consistently meet with career coaching clients who feel they’ve lost their sense of purpose in their work.

by Joan Runnheim Olson - Dec, 2011
1. Network, Network, Network!!! Up to 80% of jobs are found through networking. In addition to face-to-face networking (the most powerful) be sure to add social media networking to your list. 2.

Any less than that will most likely lengthen the amount of time you spend looking for yo...

You may hear some job seekers mumbling that "hiring will be worse this December". You know what? That is complete bunk... It isn't true!
