Advice from TheLadders.com this holiday season
Have you taken a look at some of the career advice that is available on TheLadders.com? This holiday season, the following may be the most important thing you can do to increase your chances for finding a job: "Making the Most of Holiday Networking Events."
As you mingle with people and reconnect with old friends and relatives, leverage the opportunity to make new connections. Don't underestimate the power of your social network. By reconnecting with people this holiday season, you may have the chance to "establish connections, strengthen ties, invigorate relationships, and share ideas." So, make the most out of those holiday parties. Make an extra effort to speak with people you don't know. Get to know spouses (since they may be key decision makers or may know important people who can ultimately help you with your job search). Open up and talk about your career transition plans. Explore different industries (pharma, managed care, biotech, medical devices, health IT, medical communications, etc.).
