A New Year Career Check-Up

As we enter a New Year, this is the perfect time to step back and review the past year. This is a season for reflecting, and what could be more important to reflect upon than your career and your future?

Whether you need a totally new direction, or a shift within your existing career, take this opportunity to sharpen your focus and move onto a more productive, effective track for 2013. It’s the best gift you could give yourself.

To find the most successful and satisfying careers one needs to work from the inside out. Self-reflection is the most important step towards finding and reaching your right career fit.

Here are a few questions to help you take a fresh look at yourself and to help you move into a career based on who you are, what fulfills your needs, and what expresses you most.

  • What are the most important priorities at this point in my life?
  • What do I like best and least about my current job?
  • What do I consider my greatest strengths?
  • What excites, motivates and energizes me the most?
  • If you could create the perfect work-life, what would it be?

Answering these questions is a good start towards formulating and realizing your career goals. The better you can define yourself and your issues, the clearer and more actionable your strategy will become.

I have spent 20 years helping people choose, change and advance their careers… and I’ve been rewarded by seeing scores of clients move into satisfying, fulfilling, perfect-fit careers. If you would like guidance in defining and reaching your career goals, I would be happy to help you.
