Isn’t the new year so motivating and refreshing?
It is a chance to wipe the slate clean and really focus and prioritise with the things you want out of your life and move forward with things. Many people look at self-improvement in some way, especially after they may have over indulged during the festive season.

A Career With Numbers And Analysing As A Focus
Perhaps you love the idea of number crunching in your head, can spot patterns and even predict them? Then perhaps a career in the finance sector is the one for you.
It may not sound like it is up and coming and, thanks to the banking crisis, financial jobs are not as popular as they used to be, but there is still serious demand for talented individuals. Often getting knowledge and qualifications like a finance online MBA is enough to get you a step in the right direction for taking on a brand new role. Other industries to consider would be banking and even dealing in stocks and shares.
A Career In The Digital World
Maybe you are a real forward thinker, and could predict the up-and-coming trends of the digital world? Then a career in this area could be right up your street.
More people are able to call social media management, blogging and even creating online video content on platforms like YouTube a job these days, thanks to businesses and brands seeing the real benefit of using online influencers. It is a great way to not only have a job on your terms, where you work for yourself and choose the hours in which you work, but it could also be a great passion as you are able to share your knowledge and insight on subjects that matter to you.
A Career In Sales
Maybe you have the gift of the gab, you like to talk to people, and feel passionate about finding the right solution to solve a problem? Sales may not sound like the ideal career choice, but it really is. There are more opportunities than ever before as more companies are investing in their frontline staff.
Preferring people who will spend time with their customer finding the right solution, the industry could be in the automotive industry, selling homeware like furniture or fittings like bathrooms and kitchens, or it might even be over the phone.
As the saying goes “We’re all in sales” so perhaps it will be your forte.
A Career As Your Own Boss
Finally, there is nothing more forward thinking than starting up your own business, and as it is the beginning of the year there is no time like the present to do it.
Perhaps you have knowledge and passion for a particular industry? Maybe you have an idea for a product or service that you feel the market is missing or lacking? Now might be the ideal time to start up on your own as more people are gaining that confidence to do it.
So, whether you decide to stay with the same company and seek a promotion, move departments, move to a new place in a similar role or seek an entirely new direction, we hope 2018 is good to you and you achieve all your employment dreams.
