How to Make New Year’s Resolutions for Your Career? 

If your only experience with making New Year’s resolutions involves the traditional health and wellness goals, you may be wondering how you can use this goal-setting tradition to benefit your career.

First, consider how you feel about your current job. If you are not currently working, consider your level of satisfaction with your current life situation. Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you happy where you are?
  2. Are you content with your workplace but looking for advancement?
  3. Are you dissatisfied with your field and looking for a career change?
  4. Are you new to the workforce or looking to re-enter the workforce but are unsure what you want to do with your life?

Your current level of satisfaction and desire for change will guide your work-related New Year’s resolutions. Some potential resolutions may be looking for a job in your field with another employer, advancing in your field, or changing careers altogether.

New Year’s Action Goals for Your Career, as Self Love!

Once you have decided on your outcome goal for the new year, you can set action goals that will help you achieve the desired outcome. Here are some ideas of action goals that can help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions for your career:

  1. Take a career test to help clarify which jobs would best suit your interest and strengths.
  2. Research career options. Learn all that you can about careers that interest you, including speaking with others with those jobs. If you are looking to advance in your field, learn about the job positions you can move up to.
  3. Enroll in courses relevant to your career. This may include certification courses or classes to help build applicable skills.
  4. Update your resume. Some educational organizations may assist with this, or you can find online resources to help you build your resume and brush up on your interview skills.

No matter your career goals, the above action goals can help you achieve success. Modify your action goals as needed for your individual situation. Do not forget to take an annual inventory with each new year to ensure you are on track for career satisfaction.
