Energize your career
Most people are so busy keeping up with the demands of their jobs that they don't think about developing their strengths and dreams. Here's the advice of a career counselor on how to do it: * Be open to change. Show enthusiasm for new ideas. * Learn new skills or expand the ones you already have. * Be more visible. Volunteer for projects and be active in them. * Be a good team player. Do your share of the work and encourage others. Help your team look good. * Apply for posted jobs whether or not you have all the skills needed. * Join professional organizations.
