3 Career-Boosting New Year's Resolutions You'll Actually Want to Keep

Have One Experience That Stretches You
If you’re hoping to move up in your organization or career, look for one experience this year that will help you do exactly that. Maybe that means volunteering to help put on an industry conference that will ultimately lend your company the brand exposure it’s been seeking. This will place you in a prime position for promotion and praise.
And. hey, even if that’s not the end result of you trying your hand at something outside your career comfort zone, more than likely you will be able to network and offer a memorable learning experience, and it may lead you to discover insight about yourself.
Again, as with learning a less-than-practical new skill or hobby, you never know where this stretch could lead you, what career-path door it might open.

Learn One Tech Skill
Pick one tech skill you’d like to learn, and find out how to do it. Learn. Expand your horizons. Of course, no tech conversation would be complete without a mention of coding and the number of beginner and intermediate classes available now as a result. As one of the biggest in-demand skills today, learning the basics can hardly do harm! Remember skills of all kinds can always come in handy.

Plan One Weekend-WIFI FREE!
You are reliant on technology - who isn't these days? It rules your life in many ways, and I get it. I’m no different—always checking my email, reading important articles, scoping out LinkedIn—but I’ve gotten in the habit of disconnecting every now and then, and it feels amazing!
If you’re constantly logged on, 24/7, checking your email in the middle of the night when you get up for a glass of water, for example, I challenge you to step away from your devices for one entire weekend. Think you can do it? Doing this could lead to a creative and more energized you. And who knows where your career will take you then?
New Year, New Job?
No matter where you are in your job search process, remember three things:

a. It’s never too late.

b. You know a lot more than you think you do.

c. Your current skills can transfer to your new field and probably better than you realize. Just rearrange them like puzzle pieces that can create more than one image.

Here are 6 important strategies for changing careers:

Take courses or trainings in the new topic.

Learn the language of your new career focus.

Learn how the pieces fit together.

Be open to relocating.

Network, network, network.

Be yourself!
