Top 10 Holiday Tips for Career Success

By Ford R. Myers,
President of Career Potential, LLC

Every year as the holidays approach, most job-seekers and career changers make the mistake of halting all their efforts. They believe there is no point in pursuing new opportunities during the holidays, and that nobody is making hiring decisions until late January, so “why bother?” Many decide to do absolutely nothing from mid-November to the second or third week in January! Making these kinds of assumptions about the holidays is a huge error!

When it comes to the holidays, I suggest you become a “contrarian” – and do what all the other job seekers are not doing. Since most of them are taking an extended break, this opens-up real opportunities for you!

The reality is that the holidays are an excellent time to develop and create new contacts for your job search or career transition. Many companies are completing their budget planning for the next fiscal year. This is often the best time to get in front of hiring managers to create a position for you, for the following year. Many managers have to fill openings early in the year or they may lose the budget for that position. Also, once year-end bonuses are paid, a predictable percentage of employees will leave their jobs, creating many new vacancies!

What Clients Are Saying About Career Potential

I had the pleasure of working with Ford during a career transition. He came highly recommended and he did not disappoint! He clearly had a framework and process that he customized for my needs. I was always amazed at Ford’s level of preparation for our sessions, as well as his responsiveness to my requests no matter the time of day (or night)! I only wish I had a chance to work with Ford earlier in my career. Whether you are in transition, or fully-employed and looking to enhance your career potential, I highly recommend Ford Myers to assist you!A.
