New Year, New You

A new year is upon us. Whether your News Year’s resolution was personal or professional, are you holding yourself accountable? Make sure you set a goal. It is easy to say you are going to do something. So make sure you come up with a plan of action. It could be a short term or long-term goal, but set yourself up with steps as to how you will get there. Keep track of these steps so that you can refer back to them as time progresses. And when all is complete, make sure that you have a plan in place to reward yourself.

I wish you all the best with your resolutions and hope this is your best year yet. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about your role, please email me at

Webinar Overview

A Year to Review and Renew

This month’s Webinar focused on the 2017 kickoff to the job search. As we start the New Year it is smart to take a step back, and look at the prior year. How was your job search? Would you consider it to be a success? The webinar converted some thought provoking conversation around these questions but also covered three main topics. These topics were reevaluating your 2016 search, 2017 trends for job seekers, and finally, renew your 2017 search. If you are interested in receiving the webinar information, please contact me directly.
