Tips For Helping Your Job Search Over Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break is a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends and get refreshed before finals. There are also things you can do to give you an edge in the job/internship search process:

  • If you’re seeing friends and family during the holidays, they’ll probably ask you countless questions about your life. Be prepared to tell them exactly what you’re looking for so they can help. They may know someone to connect you with, or they may know of positions open in their own companies that they can recommend.
  • Informational Interviews: You have a couple of days off, so why not set up a time to talk with a family member or friend who works in your desired field, company, or occupation. Here are some quick tips for info interviews!
  • Take some time to work on adding LinkedIn connections! Add your family, classmates from high school and college, teachers and professors, and coworkers. This helps your profile standout and may open a few doors when you’re looking for company connections later.
