Reasons to keep job searching over the holidaysAbridged: Swan Staff

NEW YORK, NY -- There's less competition for job roles. Since most people are enjoying holiday eating and parties, you can be taking advantage of being one of the few people applying for the wide selection of jobs out there! Business does continue. While some businesses do close for the holidays, they're often open the days before and after - so it's worth emailing and applying over this time.

Getting your application in at a time when they may not be getting many, means yours will stand out. If you decide to slow down or stop job searching, it can be harder to start up again. By continuing over the Christmas period you can make sure you don't miss out on any opportunities. Make the most of the time off!

If you're already working, sometimes it can be hard to find time to job search. However, over the holiday period you can make the most of the extra time to look for work. Shoot out emails to companies you would like to work with when it's quieter. The holiday season is a great time to reconnect with people you know. A simple Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas message can be a great conversation starter. You can ask people how their year has been and what their plans are for the New Year. You never know what new opportunities might arise or who they may know that can assist you with your job search.
