We’d like to take a moment to provide a few tips for searching for work during the holiday season, for those who may be using this time to launch a new career. As always, Stark Talent is there to provide encouragement and exciting career opportunities for highly skilled candidates.

  • Revamp your resume. Take this time to review your resume for any updates in your career, including any contract assignments or education you have completed. Update the format and grammar of your resume too, with fresh bullets of your accomplishments instead of just dull job duties. Get in touch with your references and update contact information too.
  • Research job openings. Take a moment to assess your skills, as you have likely done some interesting things this year. Take an inventory of your skills and match them to new possible careers in new industries you may not have thought of before. Sort through job openings in local newspapers, online career boards, industry forums and more –then apply now.
  • Create your social network. There’s no time like the present to tap into the wonders of social media networks, like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, where many hiring managers are actually looking for candidates with your skill set. Improve your profiles with professional looking images, your resume and portfolio to have a better chance of being noticed.
  • Get connected with peers. If you have dreamed of starting your new career, one of the best ways to be in the right place at the right time is by joining professional associations and networks. Many industries hold regular local meetings, so you have a good chance of meeting company reps who are looking for quality people like you. The more you are out there in the public, the better chance you have of getting an offer.
