The Job Hunting Podcast

57. How to job search during the holidays: Three options, depending on your availability.

November 24, 2020

There is no reason to stop job hunting during the Festive Season, Christmas, and New Year. You can if you want or need to. But if you have time on your hands, or if you are in a hurry to find your next job, then this is, in fact, a great opportunity to step ahead of the game and get an advantage.

I created a new bonus workbook and workshop for my followers. Consider this my Christmas gift to you! You can download the workbook below: It's a breakdown of all the activities you need to do when job hunting, and 3 schedules you can opt into during the holidays, depending on your availability: Full-time job search, Part-time job search, or Light job search. By choosing one and sticking to it, you will feel in control, you won't lose momentum, and you will most definitely see results.

Your Invitation to Attend The Optimized Job Search 2-Part Workshop - Holiday Version

In this 2-part workshop, I will provide extra detail, tips, and advice on implementing a winning formula to get a new job faster by maintaining a job search routine over the holidays. I developed my thesis and gave a broad brush on this podcast, which will be very helpful already. But if you are serious about your job search and really need to find a new job fast, I recommend that you register. Ideally, you would want to attend the training live to ask questions and interact with me. But even if the dates and times don't suit you, registering you at least guarantees to get the recordings of the live training sessions. The 2 sessions are happening from 11am to 12pm Melbourne time (AEDT) on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2020.
