On the Eighth Day of Christmas… Create and Take Opportunities

Milk the opportunities that come your way.

Whilst January may be a month for reflection, it is also the ideal month to embrace change.  It is the time when new opportunities will start appearing in the job market, so make sure you are prepared!  Arrange to see old friends and build connections over a coffee and mince pie.  Talk to family and old colleagues, reminding them of your presence and skill set.

Make sure you are aware of what is going on in the company you work for.  Be proactive and offer to help the next time a company event is taking place, or a new project is underway.  You will get the chance to demonstrate your skills and even develop and expand on your current skill set, proving invaluable moving forward.  Leave any Bah Humbug at home – your energy and enthusiasm will not go unnoticed. It is sometimes the small things that you do that will make you memorable at work and show yourself to be a key team player.  You will also demonstrate that you are adaptable to change, willing to learn and can represent the company well.
