There is no need to be super restrictive, after all it’s meant to be a celebration, however do understand that while it is great to let your hair down and have some fun, try to keep it a little professional and be considerate of the way you behave.

If you’re thinking screw it! I’m in the market for a new job in the new year anyway, my advice to you would be, still don’t go too crazy and unleash suicide squad fury on the company. The reality is your behaviour will follow you around like a bad smell. We all know a good reference is worth its weight in gold and you never know where the future may take you.

Remember it’s an incredibly small world and depending on what industry you may work in, the word always manages to gets around. Try not to burn any bridges and jeopardise any potential work opportunities that may come your way. When in doubt it’s always best to bow out gracefully and not act like a super assassin taking on Gotham city.

The most important note to leave you with is that Christmas events are usually focused around a large amount of alcohol consumption (totally get it, I haven’t been living under a rock) but try to not overdo it. Act responsibly and professionally and try to save your wild behaviour for another night out on the town.
