First of all I would like to say a great big thank you to all our readers and clients, what a wonderful year it has been. And the news of emergence from recession adds to the positive move forward for everyone – whether you are looking for new opportunities or keen for reassurance of some stability in your current position.
Lots to look forward to next year and as you all wind down for the Christmas break I am sure you will take time to reflect on last year and how you can achieve great success next year. I know from personal experience that I have often spent the latter part of the holidays wishing I had won the Christmas lottery jackpot so I could retire to an island far away.
The reality of it is that we can get a step closer to realising our dreams by improving our career prospects – this can be by working on a promotion, gaining additional training or looking outside your current company for new opportunities.
Having a background in recruitment I am acutely aware of the raise in job applications and new candidates registering their interest in new roles over the Christmas holidays and as such my word of advice is to make sure your CV is top notch. If you are serious about moving on, spend some time updating and refreshing your CV to make sure it is current and says all the right things.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Seasons Greetings to all your families! Thanks again for your continued support and I look forward to the year ahead providing advice and guidance.
Keep an eye out for our 12 days of Christmas blogs being published over the festive period – there’s lots of advice and ideas to help you make that positive next step in 2013.
