Career Goals for the New Year

Have you set your career goals for the new year? It’s not too late to do so! Here are a few tips to help you set, monitor, and obtain your career goals for 2014!


  • Know your starting line. Having a clear idea of where you are starting the new year in your career can help you identify the best steps to take to achieve your goals. Take a moment to identify and write down where you are in your skill set, career, and position.
  • Identify where you want to go, in the long term. Are you looking to enter a new career path? Progress with your current organization? Seek a new position? Enter management? Identify and write down your long term objective and what drives you towards this goal.
  • Determine what steps you can feasibly achieve this year. While your long term goal may or may not be obtainable this calendar year, your progression towards it certainly can! Determine what skills, experiences, and education you may need to begin the process. Make a list and give yourself periodic deadlines that are reasonable to achieve these goals.
  • Find a mentor. Identify someone that you admire professionally and reach out to them for assistance in reaching your goals. How were they able to achieve their goals? How did they maintain a balance between their personal and professional lives? What advice do they have to offer?
  • Monitor your progress. Regularly monitor your progress towards your short and long term goals. Are you making progress? Do you need more information or assistance to achieve certain goals? Celebrate your small achievements and be honest with yourself about your short comings.
  • Stay the course. Anything worth doing is worth doing well, right? You’re likely to experience set backs and delays during this progress but all can become learning opportunities. Lean on your support system to keep you grounded and focused on achieving your goals!
