All I want for Chirstmas is EMPLOYMENT

Most people consider the hectic hustle & bustle of the holiday season a terrible time to search for a job. However, with the proper strategy and execution that Holiday Spirit can be used to your advantage. Kate Lorenz of careerbuilder.com writes:
What better time to network than when people are in good spirits and socializing frequently? Go to parties and gatherings, especially those where you're likely to meet new people who could be sources of job leads. Make it a point to listen more than talk. Be positive and upbeat. While you won't want to hand out resumes or press for contacts or referrals, you will want to let people know you are looking and follow up with them after the party. Seek out all the other participants and network like crazy.

This week on At Work, Emory Mulling discusses the Holiday Season job market and stuffs your stockings with plenty of job search tidbits. Friday at 3:00PM on YOUR Georgia Public Broadcasting.
