Overview of topic:
Why could December be such an important month to your job search?

At a holiday party, how do you handle the question “Did you get a job yet?”

The fact is that many companies will continue to interview during December to ramp up for Q1. Amazingly, many job seekers scale back their efforts during this time, believing that companies just go dormant. As a result, you might be missing out on valuable opportunities. In this special workshop, you'll learn to separate myth from reality and develop effective strategies for job hunting during the holidays.
