The Twelve Days of Career Management

By Cathryn Davis-

The holiday season is upon us!  Accordingly, we suspect that many of you will be partaking in feasting, last-minute shopping, family get-togethers with your nearest and dearest, general merriment and mirth, and of course, career management.  That’s right:  job search doesn’t take a break during the holidays.  In fact, if our schedules are any indication, job search is ramping up for many Darden alumni who are presumably looking toward the coming New Year, reflecting on their career goals and determining “what’s next.”

The Armstrong Center for Alumni Career Services is here to help you with your career management needs, offering our take on The Twelve Days of Christmas:

On the Twelve Days of Career Management my Career Coach gave to me:

12 LinkedIn Connections

11 Targeted Opportunities

10 Employer Research Links

9 Networking Calls

8 Professional Goals

7 Resume Edits

6 Recruiter Tips

5 Books to Read

4 Interviews

3 Negotiation Tips

2 Career Coaching Calls

1 Promotion or Awesome New Job!

If you have a few spare moments over the holidays, we encourage you to dig deeper into the Job Search Toolkit and Career Management sections of our website.  As always, we are here to support you and your career goals and we encourage you to contact us to schedule a one-on-one appointment.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or perhaps even Festivus, all of us at the Armstrong Center hope you have a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
