With the holidays just around the corner, make note of these important "Don'ts" when searching for your seasonal employment.



 The Don'ts:Don'ts

Don’t: be shy about calling your ‘ex.’ With seasonal hiring rates lower than initially anticipated, many folks are relying on previous employers this holiday season. Career Experts advise that if you had a seasonal job in past years, return to that establishment and ask if they are hiring. You are much more likely to be hired here than with a new company, because these bosses and employees already know that you are energetic, reliable, and great with the customers. (From mlive.com)

Don’t: Email your resume. As the recession bulls ahead, selling your qualifications and attributes to a potential employer in-person is becoming more imperative. Electronic communication is adequate as long as it is complimented with face-to-face interaction (From mlive.com)

 Don’t: Limit your search Use resources on the internet, including social networking sites like Craigslist, Facebook  and Twitter, and be willing to step outside your comfort zone to find work. (From ABC Local News)
