David H. Segura, CEO of VisionIT, a global leader in information technology consulting, managed services, staffing and vendor management, provided the closing keynote for the Michigan Emerging conference, hosted at Cobo Conference and Exhibition Center on November 14, 2011.

Are we kidding? Talking about your holiday job search now? Nope, this is the time. Thanksgiving is around the corner and a quality job search takes a little time… There is a common misconception lingering through the rumor mill that looking for jobs during the holidays can equate to wasted efforts. It is often thought that companies are not working or hiring from the day before Thanksgiving until after New Years Day. This rumor, however, is not true. A holiday job search is probably the last thing that you may want to do during the season, after all, gifts need to be wrapped and parties attended. Who has time for a holiday job search?
