January 1st marks for many a fresh start. We create our New Year’s resolutions to eat better, workout more, and for some improve or change jobs. Regardless if you are thinking of finding a new role, or even switching career fields, it’s a good time to reflect and think about what goals you have with your career in the upcoming year.

Reflect
The first thing is to think about the pros and cons of your job. Are there day-to-day things about your job you don’t like but overall enjoy the career field you are in? Perhaps it’s as simple as delegating so you can spend more time on the aspects of your job you enjoy and thrive at and less time on other tasks. If it’s the work environment, your boss, or the majority of your role you don’t like, perhaps it’s time to look for a different position. Think about what it is you love doing in your role and expand upon that and contemplate what other jobs may better suit your interests.

See What’s Out There
After reflecting, if you feel like a new job or career is what you need, start to see what is out there. A great resource is to speak to a recruiter such as those at SNI Companies. You can set a meeting, tell them about your skills and interests and see what they recommend. They are in the business of helping people find jobs they love and can offer you guidance.

Volunteer or Job Shadow
If you are thinking you want to switch career fields entirely, it’s great to get a feel of what your new career would be like. Perhaps you can do some volunteer work in the field you are thinking of switching to or do a job shadow. If you have any friends or family that works in the career field you are interested in ask them if you can come to work with them for 1-2 days just to see what the environment and day-to-day tasks are like. You’ll get a better idea if this is really a field you’d like to work in seeing it first hand.

Talk to Friends and Family
If you’re feeling a little lost and unsure of what you want your next career move to be, talk it out with those close to you. Bouncing ideas off someone and asking for their feedback and guidance can help you organize your thoughts and see the path forward a little more clearly.

We hope these suggestions are helpful for you and the career changes you’d like to make in the upcoming year.

New year but the same old job! BUT how many of you promoted in your office this year? This year was not very good for me as I lost my job in September, but later on, I joined a new online education startup that promotes E-Learning for students in different regions of the States. The job is going great and I hope I learn a lot of new things this new with this new and energetic team.

Starting a new job can be bit hard because you spent so much time adjusting in the environment of first job. Talking excessively about a previous job can cause trouble at you new place so stay away from this.

Specialists state the new year is a decent time to begin searching for an alternate occupation as applicants and scouts return to work revitalized after the Christmas calm. In any case, with such a significant number of individuals thinking something very similar, what's the most ideal approach to excel?

Here, we approached enlistment specialists for their top tips for work chasing, talk with procedures and making your CV as alluring as could be expected under the circumstances. Are you looking for private jobs?
