If your New Year goal is a career change, then take advantage of the New Year-inspired motivation and put a solid plan in place.
Here are some tips that will help you translate your goals into a reality…
1. Update your CV
The first step can be the hardest, but it’s refreshing to update your CV and see everything that you’ve achieved along your career. Updating your CV can also help you to figure out what it is that you want from your next step.

2. Update your LinkedIn
Updating your CV is one thing, but updating your LinkedIn is becoming almost more important – it’s your digital business card and can often be the platform for people to find you on.

3. Mock interview
Preparing for the important interview can be daunting, so why not try a mock interview? Practicing answers to commonly asked questions can cut out the “umms” and “ahhs” that can happen during the real thing.
4. Reach out to a recruiter
Connecting to a great recruiter who’s working on your team can be the best thing to refresh your energy in a job search. Job searches can be arduous and hard work, and industries change so quickly – therefore using a consultant who understands the market can be just the antidote for the anxiety of job searching.
It’s a tale as old as time – networking. But don’t be afraid to reach out to those in your industry or in your desired industry. Not just for a job, but for advice – find out from an insider if this is the move you want to make.
