Since it’s the New Year, many of our posts have focused on goal setting, and how to approach goals as you move into January and the rest of 2018. However, we haven’t specifically addressed career goals, or how to set professional goals. Here are some tips and a little information about goal setting in the workplace–
1. Identify What Your End Goal Is
The first thing that you should do when goal setting in a professional setting is to define what your end goal is. Ultimately, where do you want to see yourself in 10, 20, or 30 years? If that’s way too far down the line and you’re not sure where you want to be, start smaller. What is your goal for this job? To build your resume? Develop connections? Gain experience?
2. Focus on the Short Term
We know, we know – we just said to think about what your long-term goal is first. You should, because your short term goals should always align with your long term goals; otherwise you’re wasting time and energy. Some short-term goals might be: attend at least three networking events per four-month period; ask for a raise; or ask for feedback on a daily basis.
3. Keep Checking in and Don’t Give Up
Reaching goals, especially career goals, can take time. Keep checking in, and don’t give up if you’re feeling discouraged. Hold yourself accountable by making your career goals known to a co-worker, or even to your boss. Set timelines for yourself (i.e. by Monday, I will have put together my raise proposal), and be as specific as possible.
What are your career goals for 2018?
