With the holiday season in full swing and the new year creeping around the corner, it can be a good time to reflect on what you want as parents and how things have gone. Is your life too busy? What successes have you had this year? Is it time to make changes in certain aspects of your life? Your career is going to be a big thing that will determine how happy you feel. So if it is affecting you, then it could be time for a career change. Here are some of the reasons why a career change and new challenges could be just what you need.

  • The new year makes people want to change and do things. Like always saying that you’ll start the diet tomorrow or on a Monday, it has a similar mindset. Starting something big in the new year could be just what you need.
  • There are also things that reset for companies in the new year. It could be the vacation allowance, but it is more likely to be the budget that they have. Some of which could be money for new recruits. So it can be a good time to be looking as there are likely to want to get the new year off to a good start with new members of staff to fill vacancies.
  • Setting yourself new personal challenges could be just what you need to give yourself a boost. If you have been in the same old job for a while now, or will be returning to work after raising a family, then new challenges can be great; it keeps you busy and gives you something to look forward to. You could do some online learning, like looking for the best online RN to BSN program, for example. You could go to night school to get qualified in something you’ve always wanted to do. The point is, just push yourself to do something new.
  • Think of a list of the companies that you would like to work for. Then you can think of all of the job roles that would suit you and your qualifications and skills. Then it can be a change of mindset to help you land the role. If you have chosen somewhere that you would love to work, then think about what you can do to get the role. Who do you need to speak to? Can you get any work experience? Don’t just turn it into ‘I wish I could work there’ kind of thing. When that happens, it is not going to happen.
  • The new year brings with it a feeling of wanting to achieve, but it is important not to see this as a sign of weakness. It can be a good motivator to get what you want done. It can also be a sign that you have achieved all you can in your current role and it is time to realize your potential elsewhere.

If you normally dread the new year, then ring it in with some positive changes to your life.
