What will it be next year? A new exercise regime, taking up a new sport, learning a new language? With the New Year only weeks away it’s a great time to start thinking about your career goals for 2019.
In fact, during my two decades in Waikato’s recruitment scene, the return after the New Year has always been one of the busiest job searching times of the year, writes Judy Davison, Asset Recruitment’s Executive and Permanent Recruitment Specialist.
As a trend, most businesses place recruitment on hold from late November until schools start back in the New Year. After the break, the job market bounces back with enthusiasm and employers are hiring. If you’ve been thinking about a new role or switching up your career, it’s among the best times to do it.
Contemplating a change?
For those of you contemplating a new job or career change the down time over the Christmas and New Year period presents the perfect opportunity to reflect on your experience and think about which direction you might want to take in the future. Think about your interests, what really motivates you, and why you want to leave your current job. Use the break wisely to really unlock why you’re looking for a change and use that information to outline your new direction.
What’s your next move?
When you’ve made the decision – where to now? How are you going to start your search for that new role with a company whose values and ethics align with your own.
Figuring out your next career move can be difficult and sitting behind the computer streaming through the online job adverts can be tedious and time-consuming.
