The holidays have passed; the festive mania of family, friends, and shopping has come to an end. Now, it’s time to put your nose to the grindstone and get started on your 2018 career goals. Where are you going in the coming year? What do you want to achieve? Now is the time to make a plan and stick to it. If your 2018 career goals include finding a new or better job, you need to start now. No need to do everything at once, of course. Start small. Set one goal you know you can achieve to make your job search better. You can call it your 2018 job search resolution.
What is Your Job Search Resolution?
So, what’s your job search resolution for 2018? Maybe you want to take an online course to bolster your skill-set. Or, perhaps you want to hone your interview skills and polish your elevator pitch. Whatever you choose, taking that one small step could be the difference between success and just another year in the trenches.
To help you make a plan, this infographic from The Times of India details the results of their survey on the subject of career goal setting. You can see the kinds of job search resolutions others are making, then think about what might work for you. Whether you choose to update your cover letter, or develop your online brand, taking that first step is important.
Then, of course, the object is to build on that resolution throughout the year.
