Use the Holiday Season to Jumpstart Networking

Although it may sound cliche’ the  best way to find employment or new opportunities is by networking.  You should actively cultivate and build relationships with as many people as possible as you never know  where that connection will lead.  Networking is effective only if you maintain a genuine interest in the people with whom you are attempting to build relationships.  I recommend creating a  Excel spreadsheet of all your contacts and their respective information.   Send all of your contacts the greetings of the season with a simple note that says “Happy Holidays, wishing you the best of the season.”      This is  a great way to innitiate  relationships and if by chance you need one of your contacts before your next note your request will not appear opportunistic.
