101 Holiday Job Search Tips

Many people assume that their job search will come to a screeching halt the day after Thanksgiving and won’t pick up until January. But contrary to popular belief, millions of jobs are filled during the holiday season and job seekers who “stick with the program” in December may be rewarded with that spanking new job in January.

I recently partnered with Susan Joyce of Job-Hunt and dozens of career experts to create a new e-book called New Year, New Job! 101 Top Holiday Job Search Tips from the Job-Hunt Experts for Your Holiday Job Search, a quick but information-packed read. Fortune recently profiled some of our  top holiday job search tips and the book chapters include:
