I am honored to have Mark Babbitt (@YouTernMark), the CEO and founder of YouTern.com. If you haven’t heard about You Tern, it is a company that helps young people to become successfully employable through internships and mentors. The blog, “The Savvy Intern” is a prominent voice in the career space. You Tern recently was recognized by Forbes and Mashable as one of the top career sites. Mark’s advice has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal and USAToday.
Mark’s advice is not only for graduates and students, but also for the job seeker community at Large. He is focused family man as well as a great guy. He’s our guest today sharing advice on the job search during the holiday season.
In our discussion we talked about how graduates must continue their job search efforts during the holidays such as networking, research, and making employer connections. And yes, Mark even says that this is a great time for informational interviews as part of your job search activities.
Mark and I also talked about how it is a great time to get all of your social networking profiles in great condition. Since Linked In is a primary site for recruiters seeking talent and the best place for job seekers to showcase his or her best attributes.
