As we approach the New Year, it is important to reflect on the year that has been and the year that is to come. Reevaluating your career can be very confronting, you may find that you are perfectly happy where you are, or that you are falling behind on a plan you set yourself.
Regardless, it is essential that you review, amend and update your career goals regularly to avoid falling into a rut. Below are a few key questions to prompt your reflection and help you clarify your future direction.
Do you have a current career plan?
When you first received your current job offer, where did you see the job going?
Have there been any discussions about career progression?
Is there another position within the company that would make you happier?
Does the organisation fit with your new career goals?
Whether 2018 was your year or not, 2019 is a new opportunity to grow and challenge yourself. It is the perfect time to take that leap, whether it be a new company, a new role or going back to study for an entire new career path, a new year is a new time to succeed.
