Why Should You Wish Your Former Boss a Happy Holiday? - CoWorx Staffing - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog
The holidays are such an amazing time of year.
While stress levels can be high, the constant cheer and good wishes can make any Scrooge crack a smile.
On top of the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year” vibe the season has, it can also have another benefit; networking opportunities. Most people think about networking as a one way path always needed to make new connections. But, sometimes it is good to take a look backwards. And the holidays are the perfect excuse.
Take this season to acknowledge your previous managers and mentors. Here’s how.
Send Handwritten Holiday Cards
Have you been keeping an address book of former employers? Or, have you kept up with their new companies on LinkedIn? Use this information to write a note in a holiday card and send it off in December. And make sure to personalize the card. Don’t just send it with a generic “Season’s Greetings” message. Write about how you are thankful for their help in your career advancement. And don’t forget to include your mentors. If you don’t have addresses, they shouldn’t be too hard to track down online.
Stop By for a Visit
Sometimes a personal visit will be more impactful than a note. Why not stop by your old office for a visit. Bring some homemade treats or a nice gift for your former boss and their current staff. You can never underestimate the power of a face to face connection and if you’ve been in touch with your former workplace it would be a nice gesture visit from time to time.
Thank Them for Their Support
Of course, the most important thing that will come out of showing your gratitude toward your previous bosses is a continued connection. Everyone is told that they should not burn bridges, but why? Your former bosses may still hold the keys to your future. You want to ensure that they can offer good references and think of you when making connections. Use this as an opportunity to remain connected rather than letting it go another year.
