Use Holiday Parties to Network

Many people view the holidays as a “slow” time for any business, except retail. A time when businesses prepare for year end, putting new projects on hold and instituting hiring freezes until after the holidays. But viewing this as a time to put away your business cards and shelve your resume could be a big mistake.

The holidays are a great excuse to network and because of the often relaxed and jovial atmosphere of a party, you can be poised to make a lasting impression in a much more personal way.

Even though businesses may not be buying or hiring at this time of year, the people that populate those businesses are primed and ready to make new connections – connections that could end up generating leads for you in the New Year. [Read more…]

That is often because you hear so many horror stories about people who practically ruined their careers because they had a little too much to drink at their office holiday party or missed their one chance to schmooze with the big boss who only visits a couple of times a year because they were too afraid to cross the room and introduce themselves.

Office holiday parties do not have to be so stressful though. All you need to do is follow some basic office party etiquette rules. Here are some of the basics: [Read more…]
