Reconnect with You Personal Network
The Holiday season is a great excuse to reacquaint yourself with old friends and former coworkers. Send out a festive greeting with a brief life update, including your desire for new professional opportunities. Keep it upbeat and sincere, and invite each recipient to connect with you in the coming year.
New Year, New Start
With the year winding down, now is as great a time as any to evaluate the past 12 months. What did you accomplish? What did you learn? What is left for you to achieve? Where do you want to go?
Similarly, the break is a great time to update your resume.
