As the long weekend approaches and we pin our union jack tea towels to our doors in celebration of the Jubilee, I feel a time for reflection is upon us. Often after a few days away from the office we start to ponder our lives and what we can do to make every day a little sunnier. As we cannot rely on the British weather for this we look at our professional lives and ask the question; “Am I valued”. This comes in many forms – a big one is remuneration but an even bigger one, appreciation from the business and particularly from your boss.
If the answer is yes, brilliant! Keep on enjoying what you are doing and I hope the challenges of the role are as virtuous.
If the answer is no, then it could be time to plan a move into a new role – exciting times! In order to make sure you actually make head way with moving forward you do need to plan. Take a look at the roles out there which match your skill set and start to think about what will improve your work life. Location and type of role are huge considerations but also consider what challenges you would like in your next role. Once you have done this it is time to think about dusting down your CV and bringing it up to date, make sure you don’t rush it. I have seen dozens of CVs where previous roles are well written and the most recent role is a few disjointed sentences which ruins the entire CV.
