Whether you're a nanny, chauffeur or personal chef, take a look at some of these great tips to help you with your holiday job search. And, as always, be sure to register with Colonial Domestic Agency to make your career aspirations come true.

  • Mange your online brand: "Take time to evaluate your entire brand on your social media web-sites," urges Terri Lee Ryan of ChicagoNow.com. "What message are you sending out to cyberspace? Make sure your sites display who you are."
  • Network at holiday parties: Aside from being fun, holiday parties are a great way to get your name out there and socialize with others in your peer group. Just be sure to stick to a drink limit so your focus can be on getting ahead rather than sipping on excessive peppermint martinis.
  • Revamp your wardrobe: Another great thing about the holidays is all of the clothing sales at the mall. Take advantage of these deals and freshen up your wardrobe, being sure to add polished business suits and accessories to the mix. Dress to impress at your next interview!
