21 Brilliant New Year’s Career Resolutions

This is one of our last blog posts of 2014. We’re thrilled to welcome in 2015 and expect it to be an exciting, productive, and successful year for all. One thing we like to do before we ring in the New Year is to make our New Year’s Career Resolutions.

First, take a few minutes to reflect on last year. What could you have done better? What do you wish you had accomplished? Do you wish you could have done more of something? How can 2015 be better? What’s your goal for the next calendar year? What will you accomplish in 2015?

These are all great questions to help you channel your inner self and make 2015 your best year yet. Why not take the answers and focus them in to your New Year’s Career Resolutions?

Not sure what your career resolutions should be? Focusing on your job search, career, or professional goals is always a good choice. You’re more than welcome to take one of the following career resolutions and tweak it to make it your own…

  1. Boost your web presence
  2. Start a blog
  3. Seek an education
  4. Join an professional organization
  5. Be more organized
  6. Find a mentor
  7. Make a plan
