Holiday Job Seekers Have Golden Opportunity

Holiday Job Seekers Have Golden Opportunity

By Kate Rainey

Joseph Masek, of Josephs People Central Delco (JPCD), will prove that a slowdown of companies who hire during the holidays is a myth. Job seekers could miss a golden opportunity if they wait until after the first of the year. The free workshop will be held 7-8:30 p.m., Nov. 20, in the Parish Hall of St. Laurence Church. The church is located at 8245 West Chester Pike, Upper Darby, and the entrance to Parish Hall is from the rear church driveway off of St. Laurence Road. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation.

Mr. Masek, who is a Job Coach and Job Developer for JEVS Human Services, will teach how to keep up with your job search, with minimal time investment, while still enjoying the holidays. He will demonstrate how job seekers can become fully prepared to capitalize on hiring for the New Year. Masek worked over 20 years at Lockheed Martin Corporation in Human Resources. He earned his M.S in Human Resources Management from Widener University.

While seeking employment during December, it is easy to slow down your search and lose momentum gained during the fall hiring season. It is often difficult to schedule interviews with your seasonal plans, and those of the hiring manager. There are often distractions and festivitiesto take part of. If you need to land employment before January, hiring does happen during this time of year. Mr. Masek will give you clues how you can find job leads where few others are looking. Having a proactive approach to securing interviews through the holidays can make a big difference.

All are welcome, without regard to religious affiliation.

JPCD is a joint program of Media Presbyterian Church and St. Laurence Church in Upper Darby that provides networking opportunities, guidance and emotional support to job seekers and career changers.
