Why the holidays are the perfect time to work on your real estate agent resume

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.' Clement Clarke Moore's famous Christmas poem captures the festive spirit admirably, but there's also a message in there lurking for those looking to further a career in real estate. 

With industry activity at an ebb in December, the holiday period is excellent for ambitious realtors to make changes to their resume – especially when taking into account the usual flurry of activity the new year will bring. Read on for more reasons as to why acting now will usher in new opportunities. 

Blanes - Why the holidays are the perfect time to work on your real estate agent resume

Time to get ahead

For most people, the festive period is an opportunity to catch up on some well-deserved downtime. Work is put to one side for a few weeks, and priorities are focused elsewhere. This makes it a particularly fruitful time for the hard-working and ambitious realtor, as competition will be at its lowest over the holiday season. But remember, when sending emails it's best to avoid overly long or frivolous titles. This way you'll stand out from the rhetoric of Christmas marketing that floods the inboxes of potential employers. 

An abundance of networking opportunities

While business may be winding down, the work calendar is typically littered with social events throughout the month of December. As Christmas fast approaches, local real estate industry events will be swelling in number, giving you the chance to network. Putting together a powerful real estate agent resume is just the beginning: you need to have it read by the right person. 

Searching LinkedIn is an effective means of finding worthwhile events in your local area, as well as getting to grips with who's who. You can also use this tool to send follow-up messages to individuals you've met at each event. 

New Year resolutions

The new year provides a timely opportunity for us to make active changes in our lifestyle: evaluating what went before in order to make better choices in the coming year. This is just as true for businesses as it is for individuals, with many companies and organisations reflecting upon the previous twelve months and undertaking performance evaluations. As workforces expand and new projects are drawn up, we often see new positions cropping up across the real estate world. Send in your resume before the New Year so that you are at the forefront of potential employers' minds before the hiring rush.
