12-14-20: Let the Hanukkah Candles Bring You Light
 For Joy & Job Searches
The holiday season is upon us. We want to help you keep the momentum going during your job search and the season of lights.

You may be inclined to pause your job hunt during the holidays, assuming that there are fewer opportunities. However, employers are still actively hiring and looking for talented and motivated people. 

During the darkest time of the year, we can find the light by recognizing holidays from different cultures. Diwali was recently celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains worldwide. It is a holiday that symbolizes triumph and lightness over darkness.

Ōmisoka, or New Year’s Eve, celebrated in Japan, is considered one of the most essential days in Japanese tradition. New Year's celebrations are filled with lanterns and fireworks and various references to light.

Kwanzaa is a week-long celebration that honors African heritage whithin African-American culture. Kwanzaa begins on December 26th and lasts until January 1st. It centers around gift giving and a big feast. Kwanzaa traditionally has festivals of lights rich in African symbolism.

Hanukkah represents miracles and light. The direct translation means “dedication” in Hebrew. Tonight is the fourth night. We light these candles to honor diversity and different faith communities.

There is a crack, a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.” — Leonard Cohen.

Participant Testimonial:
"Lynn's personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."

Preparing For The Holidays During COVID-19
For many people, the holiday season will look different this year. Often, the last few months of the year are busy with parties and visiting family and friends. But due to COVID-19, things like traveling and gathering in large groups may not be possible.

Many people have lost loved ones and will be missing someone’s presence during the festivities, and even more, have lost their jobs and are dealing with financial stress. Others, like healthcare workers, may be working overtime and unable to take as much time off around the holidays as they usually can. It can be hard to cope with these kinds of changes, especially if certain holidays are the only time you see some of your loved ones.

If you live with a mental health condition, you may have an especially difficult time with the uncertainty and the change of plans this year. Many people with mental health conditions find consistency important in their recovery, especially during times of high stress - like both the pandemic and the holiday season.
