Feel like you’re simply going through the motions at work? Missing a sense of fulfillment from your job role? What better time of year than the New Year to chase the job of your dreams?
Chase, don’t wait
Professional success won’t just fall into your lap – so be prepared to work for it. Once you’ve worked out what it is you want from the world of work, go and chase it. Make new contacts, take any opportunity to take on extra responsibility and prove your enthusiasm.
Know your strengths
If you’re stuck for ideas about what to do next, make a list of the things you’re good at. Knowing your strengths is just as important as knowing where you’d like your professional path to take you, so play to what you’re good at.
Expand your skillset
There are plenty of part-time courses, evening courses and short courses that’ll help you build new skills and gain new qualifications. It’s never too late to learn something new.
Prospective employers are far more likely to believe in your abilities if you believe in them too, and if you’re planning on setting up on your own and becoming your own boss, you’ll need to have confidence in your own abilities and decisions, too.
Work to live – don’t live to work. Take some time out to clear your mind; clear a space, and take long, deep breaths. Choose some calming music – or enjoy the silence – and shut out all distractions for this stress-busting exercise in focusing on you.
Network, network, network
Make friends. Simple stuff, but knowing people in the company you want to work in gives you a great advantage. Whether it’s knowing exactly what they’re looking for in a candidate or getting a heads up on job vacancies, it always helps to have contacts.
