When you made your resolutions for 2020, did you include a plan for a new career? Resolutions can be hard to keep, but as we get into February, it’s not too late at all. What can you do, starting today, to ensure that you stick to your career resolutions? Here are some easy resolutions to keep you focused on your 2020 career goals.
Build Your Network
If you want a career in healthcare, your network should be based in the healthcare industry. Connect to people on social media, reach out to local organizations, and talk to people who could be mentors for your career. The more you build your network, the better chance you have of landing your next healthcare job.
Update Your Professional Social Media
Have you considered your own social media presence? You may not think that Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram could help you get a job, but it’s possible. Make sure your accounts have a professional public image so that when potential employers Google you, they don’t find any red flags. And don’t forget to update your LinkedIn.
Learn Something New
The New Year is a great time to reinvest in your development. Take time early this year to learn something new. Is there a skill that could enhance your experience? Is there something else entirely you want to know how to do? Whether you read more books or take a class at your local community college, commit to learning something new.
Focus on Time Management
We’re all guilty of saying that we don’t have time. But how can you make more time? It’s not that you can add hours to the day but instead focus on making those hours count. Use a calendar, planner, or online tool to better manage your time both for appointments and small tasks.
Seek Career Development
Your New Year’s resolutions can be as big or as small as you want. But why not take time in 2020 to reach for the stars. Where do you see your career going in the future? How close to that trajectory are you now? Take time to evaluate what you want to do and work on putting yourself in a position to do it.
