Don’t Make a New Year’s Resolution – Make a Daily Commitment

Posted January 03, 2018

Landing a happier job in 2018 must be more than a resolution…


Finding a new job is one of the top New Year’s Resolutions every single year. It’s up there with working out more, getting healthy and some of our other favorites. I love how the beginning of a new year helps remind us of a clean slate, a new start, a fresh year. However, one thing I have seen creating two companies that put thousands of people in top jobs is that finding a happier job is not a once a year objective. Finding a happier job begins today and every single day, regardless of your current job status or title.

What do you mean?

What I mean is that after working with hundreds of recruiters over the years and helping place thousands of people in better jobs, I have learned that the people who find happier jobs are working every day to improve, ask questions and build on their skills. It is more than a quick decision- finding a new job and even a new career path is a commitment that top talent resolves to do every single day. For example, if you are a marketing coordinator and really want that next job as a manager, what are you doing TODAY and every single day to find that job?

Okay…What does the daily commitment look like? 

It looks like taking an online course to better your skills. It looks like researching what trends are happening in your industry, in your market and finding opportunities to LEARN every single day. It may mean not clocking out at 5pm and staying to understand how your current manager works and optimizes their goals and objectives. It means using all the resources available to you...including CareerBliss (WINK!).
