Here is a great way to tell your story and get very interesting and helpful results:

Especially now during the holidays, when we have the opportunity to see and meet people in various social situations, it is a great time to do networking and do informational interviewing to let people know what we have to offer to future employers and get ideas of how we can use our skills, abilities, and experiences to help employers to achieve their goals. Here some ideas of how we can craft these messages and conversations to elicit helpful information and contacts and a great response to "I haven't seen you in a while, what are you doing these days.."
