Recommended webinar: Goal Setting for Your Career in Canada (January 19, 2022, at 12 PM MT)

1. Learn a new skill

Whether you are still a student or someone with many decades of work experience, learning a new skill can benefit your career. Think about where you want your career to go in 2022. Is there a specific skill in demand that will boost your employability? Is there a particular skill you have wanted to learn for a while? Create a New Year resolution by identifying something new that you want to study. Regardless of your choice, aim to be more knowledgeable than you were in 2021.

Bonus resolution: enroll in a course and earn a professional certification!

2. Update your resume (and LinkedIn profile)

When was the last time you updated your resume? Even if you’re not actively looking for a new job, updating your resume every few months is good practice. Firstly, you may forget about your current responsibilities and roles, so regularly updating your resume will ensure you capture your entire skillset on paper. Secondly, career opportunities may arise when you least expect them. Having an updated resume available will allow you to chase your next career opportunity once it appears. Remember to have someone else review and proofread your resume. 

In addition, make sure your LinkedIn profile is updated as well. Thousands of employers can potentially see your LinkedIn profile. As a result, your profile serves as a virtual resume. Updating and optimizing your profile will help you stand out from the other job seekers. Engage with the LinkedIn community and let others know that you are open to new opportunities.

Bonus resolution: Expand your professional network by making at least one new LinkedIn connection each month to expand your network!

3. Prioritize Your Health

It’s easy to forget about your health when striving for career success. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle will give you the energy you need to succeed. Think of ways you can stay active while at work. Moreover, create resolutions that incorporate fitness activities into your everyday life. For example, consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator. You can also try eating healthier, taking more walks and adding occasional breaks from your office. 

Bonus resolution: Consider improvements to your work-life balance as well!

4. Get Organized

Is your personal space or office a complete mess? Perhaps you’ve accumulated files and documents over the years. Look over your old belongings and throw out things you no longer need. Afterwards, organize everything that you decide to keep to find them easily. Cleaning up your personal space will allow you to think more clearly and tackle your goals in 2022!

Bonus resolution: Go through your inbox and sort your emails. Delete emails that aren’t needed!
