Whether your employer is offering career-development opportunities or not, you need to make sure you’re always growing and sharpening your skills by doing three things each month, writes Heather R. Huhman, The Grindstone.
- Review your skills, accomplishments and setbacks. You’ll see what you’ve learned, what you can brag about and what you need to work on.
- Develop new skills. You can volunteer, join a professional association, take a class or participate in a webinar in order to learn something new.
- Bolster your network. Reconnect with old contacts and make an effort to make new ones.
