Between the Trapezes

Help for when you’re between two career certainties

December 2021

Despite the ongoing pandemic, your December job search can yield you great results.

Maybe we’re stuck with new variants of COVID for years to come. Letting it stop you from doing a search isn’t an option if you care about your career: So be sure to keep your search going. As the old saying goes, keep on keepin’ on.

See the link below to my updated-for-2021 Holiday Job Search During COVID guide, for solid ideas and tips. Free.

And whatever holiday you celebrate, enjoy your friends and family, it’s a wonderful time of year!

Happy holidays!

Don’t stop looking
just because "it’s the holidays"!

Too many job hunters think nothing happens in December as far as hiring. Actually, it's the opposite that's true!

Companies and organizations hire NOW because they want the new person to be in the January training they've already set up. Or because they are starting a new initiative in January and want to beat the competition to the best people.

This month’s Tip from Joanne:

LinkedIn is all about CONTENT and ACTIVITY.

Content is your profile and what you post. All content becomes virtual ID tags pointing to you and your expertise.

Activity is what you do when you are on LinkedIn: comments on others’ posts, posts you make, articles you write, people you tag, and more. This catches the attention of the search mechanisms LinkedIn puts into play when someone is looking for a candidate.

It is not purely a job search tool but it is a billboard of sorts for you in your career. Treat it as the vital career tool that it is and it’ll reward you with the attention of hiring managers - they’ll find you!

Thought of the Month

Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.
