A new year always fills me with optimism about the boundless possibilities and serendipitous moments ahead. Personally, I can’t wait until the never-ending festive hoopla (which is very protracted, given it’s summer down-under) is over, and everybody gets back to work!
But for others, a new year can fill them with dread.
Just before New Year’s Eve, my friend mentioned that she hates this time of year. Why? She already knew what had happened that year, but didn’t know what lay ahead in 2017. A lack of certainty or fear of the unknown, made her uncomfortable.
While I view a new year as an exciting clearway, the lack of planned pit-stops may stress others.
In a new economy where jobs for life are all but extinct, and redundancies are common, we all live with varying degrees of uncertainty. Some of us deal with it better than others.
My mission is to help professionals make career moves on their terms. And when they hit some unscheduled turbulence, I can point them in the right direction.
If you’d like to give your career a nudge, or know a professional who’s planning a job change, here’s a few ideas to jump-start some proactive career management in 2017.
