January is the time of year when people start to take stock of their career, leading many to question what they actually achieved the previous year and how they can improve. The New Year is a great time to start looking at bad habits that could be harming your prospects and changing your approach to your job search. Here are 5 New Year resolutions that will help you land your next job!

Be more active

If you find you’re the type of person who avoids exercise, you could be harming your performance at work. Increasing your activity will help to boost your energy levels, which will lead to improved motivation and productivity at work. The better your performance the better your career prospects!

Take risks

Playing it safe at work can harm your career! Taking risks, whether it be approaching your manager about increased responsibility or looking for a job elsewhere, will help to move your career forward. Don’t just settle for a career you hate, take active steps this year to move outside your comfort zone to increase your prospects.

Be more positive

Actively choosing to be more positive will help to improve your career prospects. Taking a more positive outlook in your personal and professional life will help to increase your confidence and boost your motivation levels. A negative attitude will impact your suitability for roles, as you may appear unenthusiastic and uninterested in positions you’re applying for.

Get organised

Getting organised is essential to a successful career! Being organised will ensure you meet deadlines, stay focused and, ultimately, achieve your goals much faster.

Try something new

Whether it’s a new hobby or a new job, trying something new can help to increase your skill set and boost your prospects. Sticking to the same old routine could harm your motivation and negatively impact your performance at work.
