Hello Everyone! Happy New Year!
Take 2013 to be the year you advance your career. You can either advance internally, or externally if you find there is nowhere to go in terms of growth where you are. Start with trying to move internally first, apply to jobs in other departments to show interest, speak to HR about potential roles coming up, you have to put yourself out there. Make sure you have an updated resume. Try a visual resume just for fun. You have to spend time everyday doing something to help your career move forward. Schedule time in your calendar if you find it’s tough to carve out time during the day.
You can take self-training on-line if your company doesn’t offer paid training, or check with your local Collage or University to see what they offer.
You may even meet some interesting people who can help you with your new career.
