You don't have to spend the summer holidays in a suit. Find the perfect job while lazing the December days away...
Just because it's the holiday season, it doesn't mean you should stop searching your perfect career. Just because you can't stop job hunting doesn't mean you can't still enjoy your holiday. You can enjoy your holiday by implementing a plan of action that sees you lying by the pool, catching a tan, having some cocktails and enjoying the city’s nightlife while the job offers come to you.
Recruiters do the looking for you
It is a recruiter's job to be the middle man between job seekers and companies seeking suitable candidates. Once a recruiter has your CV (that you've faithfully kept updated), you can trust them to match you to appropriate vacancies. No, you don't have to pay these recruitment agencies anything. The company will pay them when the perfect candidate (which will be you) is found and placed.
All you have to do is wait for the inevitable call, inviting you for a screening or interview. Easy Peasy.
Friends do the looking for you
Open your mouth and let your friends and family know that you're in the job market. It's a numbers game: all your friends work at some company that has many different departments and job roles, with a boss and HR team (that do the hiring) and co-workers (that do the resigning). The more friends you have, the more companies, departments, job roles, hirers and co-workers you'll indirectly have access to - quite the network nogals. Since it's already common knowledge that you're a superstar employee and an excellent professional with loads to offer, a recommendation might be all you need. It's a great idea to save your CV to your smartphone, carry a few printed CVs in your car, and in a plastic sleeve in your handbag or laptop bag ready to be handed out at a moment's notice.
As mentioned before, all you have to do is wait for the inevitable call, inviting you for a screening or interview. Easy Peasy.

A Billboard does the looking for you
If Spur can use it to attract customers, why can't you to attract hiring managers too?
