Holiday Networking – A Waste of Time?

Peter asked the following question on LinkedIn a week ago:

What are your best holiday networking suggestions?

There are plenty of job seekers who will be in the job search, regardless of the notion that many hiring managers and HR will be out of the office.

What should these job seekers be doing for the next 1.5 months?

There are currently 16 answers, and they are terrific! Check out this link to see all answers (you don’t even have to login to LinkedIn)…. they come from job seekers, VPs, managers, consultants, coaches, etc…. awesome advice!

And if you don’t like this time of year, it will be over in a month… but don’t let this month slip past you!

    Keep in mind that new hiring budgets open the first of the year. You want to keep up networking, increase it if you can, so that you are the first person on the hiring manager’s mind once he’s able to bring someone on board.
