Networking During the Holiday Season

If you think people don’t get hired during the holiday season, think again. The start of a new year can bring about many changes in a staff, which could mean open positions and perhaps a spot for you to join a work team.

You can use your downtime during winter break to keep up your career development and job opportunities by doing the following:
  • Search for jobs or internships using our suggested websites
  • Network - the holidays are a perfect time to connect with network contacts you have not communicated with in a while, either through LinkedIn, social events, etc.
  • Update your LinkedIn profile, or sign up for LinkedIn if you have not done so already
  • Use Alumni Student Konnection (ASK) to ask career-related questions to Hofstra alumni
  • Meet new people by volunteering at a soup kitchen or other type of volunteering event

It's that easy! Happy Holidays, and Happy networking!

Nayelli Perez, Assistant Director
