The new year is finally here! The beginning of the new year is a great time to make changes in your professional and personal life and start fresh. Here are five tips to help make this year your strongest yet.
Refresh Your LinkedIn Profile
A lot can happen in your career in a year, and it’s important to keep your LinkedIn profile up to date. Update your headline, summary, skill sets or any projects you accomplished. Making changes to your profile will keep your network up to date with all the things you have achieved in the last year.
The start of the new year is a good time to set new professional goals. These goals can be anything from learning new skills, seeking a new job opportunity or building your network. Set time aside to plan out goals you have in mind and how to reach these goals. Planning ahead will keep you on track to achieving your goals.
Organize and Update Your Workspace
You spend a lot of time in your workspace, and it is important that your space makes you feel comfortable and inspired. Your desk can pile up quickly when you are busy, make time to clean and organize your workspace. Feeling bored with your space? Update your workspace with new decor or move around your furniture to give a new feel.
Update Your Resume
Your resume isn’t just used for job searching but can be used when asked to do a speaking engagement, joining a professional organization and more. Having your resume up to date will keep you prepared when other opportunities arrive.
Set Time Aside for You
It is easy to get caught up with work, but it’s important to keep your well-being a priority. Want to read more? Train for a race? Learn a new language? Create time to do the things you enjoy outside of your professional life to avoid getting burnt out.
