Holiday Tip: 4 Ways to Impress Others With Your Professionalism
Job searching in the holidays is not easy. It’s hard to stay positive and upbeat when you are feeling the pressure to find work. And yet, you need to have the right attitude in order to project an image of confidence that others will remember. Which leads to my tip: Instead of talking about the struggles of the job hunt, you need to find other things to discuss and do, like finding ways to impress people who may be able to help you. There is a simple technique I teach clients to make networking during the holiday easier. Just because you aren’t employed, doesn’t mean you don’t have a lot to offer to the conversation. All you need to do is provide value – and that can be done quite easily with a little thought on your end. You see, people respect, admire, and most importantly REMEMBER individuals who share something of substance. In doing so, your credibility goes up, as does the likelihood of someone thinking of you next time they hear about an open position.
