3 Tips to Career Success in 2020

By The Intersect Group

We know, change can be scary. But make this the year you turn your career aspirations into career successes.

Here are three tips to achieve your career goals this year:

First, define your goals – and make sure they’re your own. So often we become influenced by the people around us, coworkers, our family and friends, that we end up chasing someone else’s dreams for us. This year, define YOUR goals – and start chasing them.

Next, draw the line between what’s unrealistic and what’s attainable. This one will take some brutal honesty with yourself, but in order to make 2020 the year you turn pipeline dreams into your reality you have to first establish realistic goals. What is feasible for you?  And remember, it’s what’s feasible for you this year, not 10 years from now. Set small attainable goals that will lead you to your dream job.

Lastly, cast your fears aside and give yourself the opportunity to truly be successful. Adversity makes us stronger – people and professionals. Embrace the challenges, plan for them and then move beyond them. Most people don’t make on their first try – think of Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs and J.K. Rowling. Try, try again.

It’s almost a new year and the best part is that you can make it whatever you want it to be. If you’re looking to pivot in your career or take on a new and challenging contract, get in touch with us.
