Harness the energy of the holiday season for a job hunt boost!

At last – here come the holidays and along with it, a few days of downtime not having to worry about exams!

Take the time to unwind, relax and recharge in preparation for an exciting 2018. And if 2018 is the year of job search for you, you may want to use some of this extra time getting ahead in your job hunt.

Include these things in your to-do list and check them twice this holiday season:

  1. Identify job targets – Look into different jobs and research employers to help you in creating your job search strategy for the new year.
  2. Review your job search tools – Update your resume, portfolio, and social media presence instead of cramming to make changes at the last minute.
  3. Practice your elevator speech – Use this time to chat with family, friends, acquaintances and maybe strangers you meet at gatherings to practice your pitch or elevator speech.

Contact Student Employment Services at 204.632.3966 or JobCentre@rrc.ca for more information on job search preparation, and to book an appointment with an Employment Advisor.

Student Employment Services wishes you all the best this holiday season and in the New Year!
