Making the Most of Your Career During the Holidays

The holidays are filled with many events to attend both in and out of the office. While you are enjoying time with family, friends, colleagues, and current/potential clients, use the time to network.

Whether a Family Dinner, Cocktail Party, Office Lunch, Multi-stakeholder Dinner, or Charity Event, you should have a networking game plan… beyond what you will wear or having the perfect hostess gift.

As you attend events, keep these tips in mind to make the most of  YOUR Career:

Where to sit:

  • Consider someone you’d like to work more closely with and collaborate with in the coming year
  • Consider someone that has been successful and ask questions to learn about their path to success
  • Consider a family or friend that can put you in touch with new prospects

What to talk about:

  • Be an Ambassador for your company & give glowing reviews
  • Don’t be shy about explaining What you do and What you would like to do
  • If you are on the job hunt, network with those working at companies you’d like to work for… many companies offer referral incentives. They might want to refer YOU!
  • Engage in conversations about office, client, and community interests.  Be prepared with key statistics
  • Mention you’d love to get a meeting on the calendar & exchange contact information

When you start the New Year:

  • Follow up quickly with new prospects
  • Contact those that offered to help you in YOUR Career Search
  • Foster new relationships and build stronger relationships
  • Make plans for coffee, to go to lunch, or play golf

A Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!
