Did you know that January is the biggest job searching month of the year?
Since the New Year is all about new beginnings, it is no surprise that many people are looking for a new job or considering a change in career.
On average a person changes his/her job 10-15 times throughout their working lives.
Setting goals is the best way to realize your employment goals. To quote American Radio Speaker and Author, Earl Nightingale, “People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.”
Need some tips?
Try taking inventory of your skills, interests, achievements, volunteer work, etc.
