To quote John Lennon and Yoko Ono “So this is Christmas and what have you done….” about your career?

To make use of golfing parlance the Saturday of a major golf tournament is “moving day” positioning oneself for the final day of competition. In Australia candidate activity markedly increases in January. January is “moving day” for career minded people.

The break over the festive season provides an opportunity to review where you have got to and where you want to go.deathtostock_quietfrontier-10

Be specific in defining what attributes you want your next role to have in tangible and intangible terms i.e. list anything that will cause you to accept or decline a job offer. Also decide what role the next job will lead you to and what experiences and training you might need to get there.

Often the best organisation for your next career move is the one your are currently working with.

The only person managing your career is you.

Best wishes for a Happy Christmas and a successful New Year.
