Networking is the key to landing your next job. So the last thing you should do is jeopardize your relationships within your network. Lindsay Olson puts it simply: “Don’t Burn Bridges.” You’re going to need those contacts in the future when you’re looking for a job. Referrals are a HUGE percent of hiring, so make sure you have a positive image in the minds of anyone and everyone who can refer you to your next job.

P.S. — This season is a great time to reach out to those contacts, as most people are in high spirits!
