If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to focus on your career, you’re not alone. When it comes to good intentions, securing a new job often features amongst our top three goals, along with exercising more and achieving a better work-life balance. But, all too soon, those good intentions can slide.
This year’s so-called ‘Quitter’s Day’ is predicted to be this Sunday, 19 January – according to Strava. It’s the day most people are likely to cast aside their resolutions, whatever they might be, and lose motivation. And when those resolutions concern our job, often the fear of change and obstacles in our way can hold us back from realising our true potential.
In fact, research has shown that around 25% of people give up their aspirations after just one week, whilst fewer than one in ten will maintain their focus until the end of the year.
The good news is there’s really no better time than now to put your career goals into practice. January delivers myriad new opportunities and TalentTech Recruitment have a wide array of exciting roles in the Technical and Technology space for your fresh start.
Keep abreast of technological advances and industry news and, of course, ensure your technical skills are up-to-date to put you in the strongest position as a new decade dawns.
Establishing a strong professional network is also a great way of highlighting your skills and experience to recruitment companies and hiring employers alike. Building a robust profile on a channel such as LinkedIn increases your visibility significantly and can indicate whether you’re open to new opportunities.
