New Year: Take Your Career to the Next Level

Let’s ring in the New Year and take a moment to assess our career! Each year, we have resolutions that we make or break. With 2022 approaching, let’s review where we are now and what’s next.

Check out these 5 resolutions below that you won’t want to break:

  • Self-reflect- Think about where you are now and where you want to be. Are you seeking a promotion, career change, or interested in refreshing your skills? Make a list of your accomplishments and assess the next steps.


  • Create a timeline for success- Create a list of your actions and define designated due dates on your calendar. This will help you stay accountable throughout the year. Check out apps such as Vervo and Strides to help keep you on track!


  • Network- Attending virtual or live career fairs is a keyway to expand your contact list of professionals who you can collaborate with. LinkedIn, Meetup, and social media groups are also ways to meet professionals with common goals. Expanding your network can also keep you abreast of opportunities that may interest you.


  • Take a class- Aim to sharpen your skills and learn something new. Is there a technology or software you want to become proficient in? Or perhaps you need to update a license or certification. Taking a class will help you to stay competitive in the industry.


  • Update your Resume, LinkedIn & Cover Letter-Finally, add your goals, accomplishments, and skills to your professional documents. This will showcase your personal brand and highlight key achievements from the previous year. Get ready to market yourself or go after that promotion. You deserve it!
