There’s something refreshing about the start of a new year.
The past is behind you and it’s what you do now that will define the next 12 months.
What do you want to accomplish in your career? Don’t let previous disappointments
hold you back. It’s time to confidently move forward in the direction of your

Here are three simple ways you can make a fresh start in
your career this year:

1.  Evaluate your career

In order to progress, you must have
a clear understanding of where you are now and where you would like to be. Take
time to evaluate your current job status and satisfaction. What do you like
about it? What do you want to change? Write it down and devise a job strategy
for the next year that will make your career more rewarding.

2.  Expand your resources

If you’re considering a career move, why
not add some resources to your job search efforts. In terms of networking, a
staffing firm can be your best connection to top local employers. And, they are
not limited to temporary assignments, as some may believe. When you work with a staffing firm like Spherion, you’ll expand your job search and put a
well-connected career advocate in your corner!

3.  Embrace the possibilities

Don’t be afraid to do something different. Switch
things up a bit. Sometimes, we get so stuck in the routine of what we’ve been
doing that we forget there is a world of opportunities out there. As you begin
a new year, explore new things and embrace the exciting possibilities they bring.

There’s nothing like a fresh start to motivate change in your career!
