Time to Prepare Your Career Plan for the New Year!

It’s a good time to think about the past year and what you might want to do differently in the new one.  If you’ve found your “joy” in your current job then read no further after you check out the coming industry event list MeetingListDec.20_09 (downloadable Word doc)

But if you’d like to consider other career options or paths, read on. First, here’s this week’s list of jobs for ideas as well as options if you’re in transition Jobs That Crossed My Desk Through Dec. 20_2009 (downloadable Word doc)

What do you like about your current job or function? What are you missing? More interaction with other professionals, patients,  customers, or less? Is your work day routine satisfactory? Would you prefer to use more of other skill sets you have, e.g, analytical or creative? Are you waking up in the morning, looking forward to start your work day or wishing you could avoid it?

I’ve listed the two upcoming free program overviews at UCSC Extension in January for you to consider attending as you consider your next career steps.
