As the holiday season skates along, it might be tempting to steer your sleigh away from your job hunt, with good intentions of re-starting in the New Year. Don’t wait! The simple truth is that rarely are there more opportunities to reconnect with (and expand) your network than during the social season of greeting cards, holiday cheer, Secret Santas, and Christmas parties.

"I had the post-graduation blues. My gown and chords were neatly tucked into a dresser drawer and the cap dangled by the tassel on a closet hanger. A neatly bound degree sat on my desk. Four years of study culminated in a pompous robe and a certificate inked in fancy calligraphy. Jobless and penniless, I set out in search of employment.
The stagnant Missoula job market greeted me with an unexpected silence, exciting prospects fizzled, and promising leads uncovered dead ends. Then, Jennifer intervened.
After I hired Rainmaker to revamp my Resume and Cover Letter, I was instantly invited for an interview. Panic promptly rooted itself deep in my stomach, squashing any sense of relief I may have felt. I had never really interviewed before, not for a real job.
Soon we were at The Break for Interview Coaching. Jennifer and I talked about what to expect, how to dress, the right answer to every question, and the right questions to ask. It was hard to believe I could be so prepared for an interview--it felt a bit like cheating!
The interview went well. Loosening my tie as I left the office, I remember wishing the interviewers had challenged me more.
Facing the real world can be overwhelming for a recent graduate. Jennifer's resume was great and after she'd coached me, interviewing was an accessible, almost effortless endeavor. Thank you!"
