The New Year is upon us, one filled with potential and possibilities! At least, we hope that’s the case, both personally and professionally.
And speaking of your professional life, suppose that this is the year that you make serious progress in your career. Because of the pandemic and other factors, the past few years have not exactly been conducive to exponential professional growth.
However, 2023 could be different. But what must you do to make it happen? What steps should you take?
The good news is that we have the answers! Below are five steps for creating a career plan to grow in 2023:
This is not as intimidating as it sounds. In this case, Google is your friend. Find out what’s happening in the industry in which you work. See where the opportunities might be and which companies are offering those opportunities.
#2—Audit your skills and interests.
Conduct an objective assessment of your skills and experience. Basically, identify the value that you can offer to an employer. What about your interests? What interests you the most, especially in an employment opportunity?
#3—Make networking a priority.
We can’t emphasize enough the role that networking can play in a person’s career. It’s not just what you know and it’s not just who you know, but’s a combination of both what you know and who you know. So at the same time that you’re increasing your knowledge, be sure to increase and enrich your professional relationships.
#4—Set aggressive yet realistic goals.
These are also known as “reach goals.” They should make you feel a bit uncomfortable when you set them, because you might have to step out of your comfort zone in order to achieve them. “All growth is painful,” as the saying goes.
#5—Align yourself with an experienced staffing agency.
There are people who can help you to tackle your professional goals and grow your career. In fact, they may already have access to great new employment opportunities in your area. However, you won’t know about them or be able to leverage the expertise of a staffing agency without first reaching out and expressing your interest.
