Shopping for a Job?

Happy Holidays! I can't believe Thanksgiving is over and it's time to gear up for the Holidays. Shopping is on everyone's agenda right now and some proactive people braved the crowds on Black Friday to find great bargains and whittle down that Christmas Wish List. Can you spell STRESS?

Tis the season, right? Right, but for many people the holidays are extra stressful because they are unemployed or underemployed and searching for a job. It's hard to get excited about the holidays if you are on a tight budget or no budget at all. It's a fact that this season finds more people depressed than any other. So what can you do to navigate the holidays while shopping for a job?

Here is a great article from TheAfter5Edge to walk you through the seasonal job search:

Maybe we should also get into the spirit and help someone find a job this holiday season… we can help by giving encouragement, support and passing along job leads. We can also help them network and connect with recruiters and hiring managers in our networks. I am extending an invitation to visit my company website, http://www.intuitcareers.com/, and let me know when they have applied for a job online at Intuit.  I can't promise you an interview but I will make sure that the recruiter handling that job is aware of your interest.  At Intuit, we pride ourselves on giving back to the community and this is just one small way I can offer my services as a recruiter. 

Let’s start paying it forward... get into the spirit and help someone have their best holiday ever… Happy Networking!
