How to Get a New Career in the New Year
For many, the new year can trigger a lot of change from small resolutions to huge life decisions such as buying a house or changing careers.
Are you getting the new year itch to shake up your career? You might be unhappy in your current job and know it’s time for a change, so channel your newfound resolve and do something about it!
I’m not saying you should dramatically announce to your boss and the rest of the office that you’re quitting – burning your professional bridges is never a good idea – but it might be time for you to start actively pursuing a new career elsewhere, and in this episode I share some important you should ask yourself before taking that leap, including:
- What do I really want to do?
- Is there an opportunity to move internally?
- Is it time to go it alone and become an entrepreneur?
Taking some time to reflect and understand what you really want from your career will help you make appropriate goals. Remember: your career is a marathon, not a sprint, so take the time to get it right!
