Heads Up, Gear Up
Can you believe it’s February already? As my eighth grade English teacher used to say, Chop, chop! Time to move. We need to beat those winter blues away and run deep into our objectives. With midterm season approaching and jobs opening up, the start of the year is one of the most crucial times to set oneself up for success. For those in their final year of university, I am sure you are already in the process of securing jobs – if you haven’t already done so – and looking for employment post-graduation. For others, this may also be an important time to consider your immediate goals (i.e. span of 3-5 months) to ponder about which steps you should take next. Clearly, talking about studying for midterms, attending seminars and networking sounds a bit too redundant. We all know that. What I would like to discuss is self-empowerment and recalibration.
