New Year, New Career: Professional New Year’s Resolutions
Have you decided to make your career a priority in 2020?
Congratulations, you’ve made it to 2020!
This year, why not add some professional goals to your list of New Year’s resolutions, and take your career to the next level. Here’s a list of 5 goals to get you started.
Learn a New Skill
With so many easy and free ways to learn a new skill in 2020, adding it to your list of resolutions in a no-brainer. Why not learn negotiation skills, email marketing, or public speaking.
Keep Your Resume Updated
It’s easy to forget about your resume as soon as you land the job, never picking it up again until you come across a new opportunity. The problem is, by the time you need an updated resume, your accomplishments are buried in the past and sometimes forgotten. Make an effort to update your resume every quarter, whether you’re job-hunting or not.
Keep Your LinkedIn Up-to-Date
Ditto for LinkedIn. When’s the last time you reviewed your LinkedIn profile page? Update as frequently as your resume, if not more often.
Network. Network. Network.
Connect on LinkedIn. Reconnect over coffee. Attend a networking event. Take any and all opportunities available to connect with people in your professional network – it’ll pay dividends over time.
