Career Check List 2023

Basic Career Check List for 2023

I always take advantage this season to review my basic career check list, and ensure I am career ready for the coming year… It really pays off to do an “end of year career check list”… Software and technology upgrades complete for desktop and mobile? Check. Computer and email files cleaned out? Check. Apps inventory complete and paired down? Check. Hard drive backed up? Check. Document and email files organized and ready to go for 2022? Check! Newsletters curated and updated to reflect your needs going forward? Check!

Perfect. You’re now ready to take your career check list the next level!

Short, mid and long-term goals list? Check! Personal brand, resume and email signature upgraded and fit to pass artificial intelligence (AI) and applicant tracking systems (ATS)? Check! Library of “visuals” for social media? Check!  Strategic, empowered approach to hidden job market? Check! Expanded/CURATED network of contacts? Check! Screening call/interview ready? Check! Ready to negotiate that raise? Check! Can you tell an employer exactly why you’re better than anyone else for that job (p.s…it’s all about your business case!)? DOUBLE CHECK!

I got into the habit of doing year-end computer and marketing scrubs years ago! Cleaning out my computer and feeds, upgrading my software, and preparing my marketing tools really puts me in a confident spot, starting the new year. Everything feels fresh and organized — which leaves me open to creating new product, overhauling services, and generally putting my best foot forward professionally. I repeat: it feels really good but also, it’s massively empowering: a GREAT POSITION to be in, starting any new year.

I challenge you to do the same. It takes 3-4 days to get it all done, but it’s so.worth.it!

Set yourself (or a friend) up for professional success in 2022! Pay this forward and share on social, for a friend, colleague, classmate, employee, new gradmillennial, new immigrant, or anyone in your circle who is under/un-employed, and struggling to get greater career traction.
