Setting Career Resolutions for 2018

With a new year comes your typical new year’s resolutions. Vowing to eat healthier and work out more, read a new book every month, and spend more time with family and friends tend to be at the top of many lists this year. But, why not take your drive and motivation to improve your life outside of the office, and fuel it to improve your career goals? Here are a few “career resolutions” to help kickstart your 2018:

 

1. Communicate

It goes without saying, but excellent communication can be the key to success when it comes to your career. Make sure you are able to set aside some time with your supervisor or team members to go over weekly, daily, or even yearly goals that you have for yourself and your department. And make sure to maintain this open communication throughout the year to ensure all operations run smoothly amongst you and your coworkers.

 

2. Update Your Resume

Whether you’re looking for a new job and advance your career or not, updating your resume ensures that you are always ready to make that change when the time comes. It also allows you to keep track of your yearly goals in your current position.

 

3. Volunteer

When the stress of modern-day work can get the best of you, dedicating your time to an amazing non-profit or charity organization can help revitalize your career goals. Many companies today are taking part in volunteer and charity initiatives, including us!

4. Learn A New Skill

Take some time out of the office to learn a new skill. Whether you’re interested in learning more about the Adobe suite, taking up some new key phrases in a foreign language, or enhancing your public speaking skills, there are so many ways to increase your professional resume and skill set.

 

5. Set Time Aside For Fun!

Your career is very important, but also taking time for yourself outside of the office is equally important. Whether attending yoga classes bring you joy, traveling puts some pep in your step, or even spending time with friends and family, make sure you are able to take time for the things you enjoy throughout the year!

 

6. Learn and Grow

In this year and every year, always be sure to learn and grow as an individual in every sense of the word! Always try your best to improve to be the best version of yourself! Take advantage of every learning experience you come across and take whatever you can from other life experiences, as well.
