The holiday season provides an opportunity to step back and reflect on your career goals and reassess whether or not you are on the right path. With refreshed budgets, new strategic plans and everyone back from vacation, employers tend to ramp up their hiring in the first months of the year as well.

If you are considering a job change in 2017, the holidays are a great time to get your career house in order. During this special career webinar, Devex's career and recruiting guru in-residence, Kate Warren, will share what you need to do now to be job search ready in 2017.
