There are a number of things you can do over the holidays to help your job hunting efforts. Just because you won't be spending as much time on job boards or LinkedIn doesn't mean you can't improve your prospects. Here are some tips for you:
- Network: Make sure to tell people at holiday parties that you are currently looking for work in the nonprofit sector. You never know who will be able to help you out.
- Keep Up The Search: It's true that you aren't going to be seeing too many new jobs posted during the holidays. But you should schedule some time to browse for recent positions. This will make it easier to get back into the routine when vacation is over.
- Holiday Cards: Send holiday greeting cards to everybody that has helped you with your job search.. This includes networking contacts and hiring managers whom you have recently interviewed with. Make sure to enclose a business card with the letter.
