Leaving a good impression at holiday parties
Christmas is a time when family and friends get together to celebrate the holiday season. December is also the month when stores and shopping malls are filled with festive decorations and people searching for that perfect gift. This is also the season for holiday get-togethers with employees whether it is a big corporate party or a simple get-together at their boss’ place. Although employees may not realize it, their company party is actually one of the most important functions that they will attend all year.
Holiday parties are indeed a time to socialize and have fun, but they are still business functions. Your career requires you to behave professionally in order to make it a memorable and successful experience. Amy Affolter of The Creative Group in Minneapolis says that, a corporate holiday party provides an opportunity to bond with co-workers. It’s a time to interact with management and show enthusiasm for the company, all of which can be career boosters.
