Unfortunately this post contains absolutely NO good news. But it does talk about moral fortitude.
Summary: It is absolutely futile to look for a job between now and January 01 2014.
Just some of the reasons in my IT world
- Work is winding down to zero over Christmas. Employers are not hiring now, in January at the earliest.
- The Christmas change freeze i.e. we dare not touch anything because a significant part of the workforce is away, is upon us. This includes interviewers! Give it up.
- Suppose you did land a job, you would have to start and compromise Chirstmas! Would not the time be better spent with intensive New Year preparations
But believe me I am still trying
Don't call us
