The holidays are a great time to visit with friends and family, reflect on the past year and look ahead to the next.
But if you’ve just begun a job search, it can be hard to stay focused and productive during this busy season. Last year, we blogged about things you can do to maintain momentum over the holidays, such as networking, volunteering and checking in on your online image.
If you weren’t able to attend our Job Search webinar on December 9, another way you can be productive is to watch a recording of it. (Just click here.) In this webinar, our career coach Julie Jansen offers tips on creating an effective resume, sharpening your interviewing skills (including fielding questions about resume gaps) and more.
