The Holiday Party Before Christmas...
'Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the town,
holiday parties were planned, yet you wear a frown.
You're afraid of the questions, by family and friends,
Asking exactly how your job search has been.
What do you say, that your job search has failed?
Try to answer politely, with your frustration veiled?
Those questions can make these parties seem a grind,
But here are some tips to help your ease your mind:
Don't talk about how the search makes you sad,
Instead talk about some industry fad.
You may meet someone who you think can help you,
but avoid begging them, that you cannot do!
You may think a few drinks will give you some more charm,
but you'll likely cause you less help and more harm.
For more information on what you should do,
if these holiday parties are making you blue,
read the Vault blogs, they're available here,
to help you go out and spread some Holiday Cheer!
Happy Holidays from Drexel University Libraries!
