New Year's Resolutions in the Job Search Just Don't Work!
Let me explain about why I think resolutions to find a new job don't work. New Year's resolutions are too ephemeral! They are a signal that something needs to change within a person, but the dedication to change isn't really there. It's a lot of wishful thinking, isn't it?
How to make a resolution work for you? Here are my tips. 1. Write them down. Refer to them often. Make any small changes as you move along. 2. The resolution needs to be realistic. Concrete resolutions that need action can't be ignored for long. 3. Make something happen that is on your resolution list. Take one of the items on your list and diagram or write what you must do to make the change. (Calling on employers could be on the list). 4. Keep moving. Your resolutions need to be fulfilled. Don't take your own "no" as the answer. Persevere, start over as need be. 5. Be successful in achieving a goal.
