Should Your Job Search Take a Holiday?
Many job seekers think there is no point to searching for a job during holiday season. After all, everyone knows that work tends to slow down around the holidays when companies are holding office parties and workers are out shopping for gifts.
But taking a break from your job search could be a big mistake. By not continuing your job search during this time, you could miss opportunities to network and to make yourself known to employers before January, which is when many employers get serious about hiring.

WARNING! BAD BOSS AHEAD!
