Happy Holidays. I know you are not in the mindset to be thinking about career development. During your down time with the family keep a few things in mind for when you are ready to job search. Follow directions--sounds simple, yet many candidates are eliminated from the job pool because they did not follow directions. Points to remember:
- Send a cover letter
- Check grammar and typos
- Do not send to multiple people (over kill)
- Send the application or resume by the due date
- If you do not hear form the employer it is ok to send a follow-up email within two weeks HOWEVER do not cyber stalk!
Enjoy being home with family during the season and take time to refresh.
