6 Tips to Spring Clean Your Career

My latest newsletter is out-- Spring Cleaning Your Career.

Happy first week of Spring! It’s so nice to see the bright sunshine again, streaming through my windows. If you’re like many folks, you’ve already started on your home cleaning checklist. You’ve paid extra attention to your baseboards, and your ceiling fans, but what about yourself? 

Spring is also the perfect time to get your career goals in order. You’ve made it past the hiring freezes over the winter, and jobs are popping up every day. Even if you’re not looking to quit your job tomorrow, now’s the time to work on yourself for three very important reasons: 
  1. The best jobs are often found by chance. If a recruiter called you out of the blue tomorrow, would you be prepared? 
  2. When you wait to polish up your personal brand (and your LinkedIn profile) all at one time when a job does come around, you raise suspicions at your current employer. 
  3. You never know when you might be unexpectedly looking for a job. Even top performers are at risk when a corporation goes through a layoff.
