‘Tis the season for office holiday parties! A word to the wise, here are some things you should when deciding what to wear:
Remember, you are partying with your boss and colleagues so that means your reputation is on the line. A good rule of thumb is this: Less skin is more! Because the more skin you show, the less authoritative you become.
The quintessential dorm room lighting choice takes on a whole new dimension during the holidays! Christmas lights are the cheapest and easiest way to decorate for the holidays, and have a myriad of uses:
To hang your lights, use Command hooks or strong, clear tape (I use packing tape) to keep them from falling and keep your walls in tact.
As always, the only trick to a successful job hunt is knowing what you want. As you reach out to the leaders you hope to work for, keep the following things in mind.
Malls and Stores
Retail jobs are easy to get because because retailers need extra staff to help with the influx of shoppers. An added bonus is that many of these businesses provide employees with special in store discounts.
Restaurants and Caterers
Due to all the consumers out and about shopping for Christmas there is a jump in the amount of people dining out. Also, with holiday parties and extra family visiting for the season, restaurants and caterers need extra people to keep things running smoothly. One of the perks to working this time of year are good tips since people are feeling extra generous and giving.
As soon as the cold weather hits and snow begins to fall people head up to the ski resorts so there is a need for instructors, hotel and restaurant staff and other jobs available in and around the resorts. An added perk to working at the resort are discounted lift tickets, meals or other added freebies.
Many employees take time off during the holidays leaving employees scrambling to find replacements. Registering with a temp agency early will put you at the top of the list for these openings. People with good typing skills and that are efficient with common office computer programs have a leg up on the competition but there are plenty of positions available for answering phones to filing.
Spring break is less than a month away. Are you ready to break out your swimsuit and beach body in public yet?
