Happy New Year! January always offers that feeling of a new start so seize it! Make 2015 the year that you take time to think about your career not just work in your job. Keep your career moving in the direction you want.
This month: Investigate the jobs market
January is the month to look around and see what is out there. I am always happy to chat, either during the working day or after hours. If I know what it is that you are looking for from your career then I can identify roles and flag them to you as they arise during the year. The market differs so much according to areas of law there is no way to know what is out there without constant analysis, which is where I can help!
When significant opportunities in your field then my advice is look around, no matter what your thoughts are on your current role. Ensure that you are best placed to achieve your career aspirations. Areas of law are cyclical; if you look for a role when the market is flooded you will find your best option.
If you need to move sooner then make sure I know, and be sure to seriously consider every role that comes along, don’t dismiss anything until you have all the information.
Thanks for reading and all the best for 2015. Here’s to a year of career progression
