Many people take time between Christmas and New Year’s to de-stress and spend time with family.
This is also a good time to do some reading and planning for your career. New Year’s resolutions are coming, too. Identify some career goals for the next year and use the time to map out a plan. Or polish your resume. Then, if and when you need it, It’ll be there.
It’s also a good time to discuss your career with your spouse/partner or friends. Allow them to help you sort through your plans and options.
