Were you one of the 25% of Canadians who made a New Year’s resolution related to your career?
Read this result from the Workopolis Career Survey:
Canadians are prioritizing career planning higher for 2009 than in past years, a recent Workopolis poll conducted by Harris/Decima reports. Of the more than 500 working Canadians surveyed, 25 percent responded that they are contemplating a New Year’s resolution related to their careers. This figure indicates a significant rise since a similar study in 2006, when only 13 per cent of Canadians said they planned to make work-related resolutions.
Career development requires more than resolution. It requires engagement.
- What have you done in the first 8 days?
- What do you need to do in the next 357 days?
To be fully engaged means to also be fully engaged with your own career.
