Time away from the office doesn’t just benefit your mental health and your relationships, it’s good for your career as well. Use the break from your routine to gain some perspective. Take just an hour out of your holiday break to print your résumé, reflect on all you’ve achieved this year, and consider what you’d like to add to your résumé and professional bio in the coming year. Grab a cup of eggnog or cocoa and let yourself dream. Close by spending a few minutes bullet journaling about what you’d like to accomplish. Put your notes somewhere that you can revisit them in the coming months.

You’ll thank yourself later for taking time to think about yourself and your achievements as the year draws to a close. If a new position is part of your plans, reach out to us at Hyatt-Fennell Executive Search to discuss what shape your future might take.
