Gift Ideas for Job Seekers

Posted: Updated:

Job hunting is a job in itself.  So treat the 'hunter' in your life with a nice, inexpensive surprise for the holidays.

These ideas will help them during their search:


*Starbucks Gift Card - $5 will get them at least one drink, so bottom's up!  Add on more to keep them up and running.

*Journal, Folder, Business Card Holder - I love the business card holder idea.  But you can also find neat leather bound folders--or even a notepad with heavier stock paper.  Sticky notes are another thing to consider.

*Association Membership - Get them involved by covering their fee--maybe even a trade journal magazine subscription.

*Gym Pass - Be it day, series, or a full on membership.  Staying energized and healthy is key!

*Business Book - A few good picks: Decisive & The Social Media Job Search Workbook.

*Event Ticket - Give them a break with a concert, sporting event--conference or workshop pass.
