5 Ways to Achieve Your Job Search Goals

2014 is your time to achieve your goals. With a new year comes new opportunities and 365 more days to make an impact, be remarkable, and differentiate yourself!

When you’re planning for your job search, it’s important that you have a concrete, achievable goal so that you can stay focused. But, even if you have one, actually getting around to accomplishing it can be tough.

Remember: you deserve to achieve your dreams. This could be your time to take your destiny into your own hands and create a successful future for yourself – don’t waste it! Here are my top tips for how you can achieve your goals faster:

1. Make yourself accountable.

The best way to ensure that you achieve your goals is to tell them to other people. Then, you’ll feel  more motivated to live up to the expectations you’ve set for yourself. So, tell your resolutions and job search goals to your friends and family. The more you say it, the more you’ll believe that you can achieve it. Another great way to hold yourself accountable is to have an accountability partner – this could be another person in a similar position as you, or a Career Coach who can encourage you on your journey.

2. Create a timeline and set achievable goals.

It’s still early in the new year, and you have plenty of time to plan out your ideal 2014! The more concrete your job search plan is, the easier it will be to achieve. It will also be very helpful for keeping you on task. I recommend creating a visual timeline where you write out goals that you’d like to accomplish each month of the year. Make sure that the goals are reasonable – you are capable of so much, don’t set yourself up for disappointment by underestimating the time it takes to transform your life!

3. Identify opportunities for personal development.

The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself. Whether it’s developing a new skill or exploring your passions, set aside some time for you this year! You deserve it. If you’re looking for new opportunities that will help you speed up your job search, identify opportunities, or expand your skill sets, try visiting eventbrite and searching for events that are relevant to you. Some other ideas include researching conferences, courses at your local university, workshops and training events, or certifications that you could work towards achieving.

4. Update your LinkedIn profile.

It may be a hassle, but this is a great time to reflect on your year and update your LinkedIn profile by adding in your most recent accomplishments. This could include the results of successful performance reviews, notable projects you’ve undertaken, or any recognition and awards you have received.

5. Seek out a mentor.

A mentor is a supportive, successful professional who can provide you with the advice or opportunities that you need to achieve your job search or career acceleration goals. They can also be your champion when you need a positive reference or a referral to an organization. When you’re looking for a mentor, connect with high performers or key stakeholders in your industry. Remember: people like helping other people, and, providing that they have the time and see potential in you, they will most likely be happy to lend a helping hand!

What are your job search or career management goals for 2014? How are you going to make 2014 your best year yet?

  12. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for
    me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

    Appreciate it
