Read more in-depthly about these notable topics we’ve covered over the past month:

 1) Job Searching During the Holidays

While it’s the most wonderful time for many, we recognize that it can still be challenging to navigate the job market during the end of the year and through the holidays. LinkedIn professional Andrew Seaman says, “Regardless of the advice you receive or encounter, the key is to keep moving forward in some capacity.
