Put down the champagne and step away from that last leftover selection box – the festive season is over and it’s time to get serious about 2017. For thousands of people across the UK, it’s back to work this month, and many have big plans for promotions, new jobs, and possible steps up the career ladder over the next twelve months. So how can you make the most of the coming year and ensure that 2017 is your best year yet? As a leading London recruitment agency, we know how to make 2017 the best yet, so read on to discover our top tips…
Define your goals
If you can’t define your goals, how will you ever meet (and exceed) them? The start of a new year is the perfect time to start thinking about what you want to achieve in the next twelve months. Take the time to figure out exactly what you want to do, and where you want to be in a year’s time – and be specific! Instead of saying you’d like to ‘earn more’, come up with a figure and stick with it. Want to make the move into the world of top PA jobs in London, or high-flying HR work further afield? Pinpoint your dream role and do everything you can to secure it. Once you figure out your goals, you’ll know what you have to do to achieve them.
Put yourself out there
Climbing the career ladder is ten times harder if you’re not willing to put yourself out there. If you’re gunning for your firm’s top marketing jobs, make sure your superiors know you’re keen to apply. If you’re hoping to make the move from a graduate scheme to a finance job in London, start sending off your applications, and get networking whenever you can. Your dream job won’t just land in your lap – sign up for a leading recruitment agency and start showcasing your skills to potential employers.
Learn to ‘work smarter’
We’ve all experienced it: that feeling of putting in endless hours at the office, but not making enough progress on a certain task or project. If you’ve hit a dead end in terms of your productivity in the office, 2017 should be all about learning how to work smarter. Instead of constantly checking your inbox every ten minutes while you work, set aside half an hour after lunch to go through all of your emails and reply to the ones that are most important. Learn to take regular breaks to supercharge your productivity during the time you do spend at your desk. Practice prioritising your tasks, or breaking them down into smaller tasks to make them more manageable. There are so many ways to work smarter – make 2017 the year you find what works for you!
