As you prepare for the holiday season, take some time to eat, drink and be merry. But also consider carving out some time to add a bit of professional polish to YOU, Inc.

A recipe for success:

Start with a budding young professional

Add a dash of ambition and a desire to improve

Absorb a motivational career-related read like Steven Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” or Brad Karsh’s recently released “Manager 3.0.”

Network with friends and family. Sometimes those who know you best can be great resources for support, ideas and professional contacts

Review your online image, utilizing the Online Identity Calculator

Add any pre-holiday accomplishments to your resume and LinkedIn Profile

Find a pinch of inspiration and information from some career-focused blogs/websites:
Career Transitions Blog by Katherine Brooks Ed.D
Career Enlightenment Blog by Joshua Waldman
Glassdoor Blog
Career Advice Column on Diversity Inc.                                       

Fold in a bit of good cheer and be prepared to own your career!

By Kristin Nisbet-White, assistant director of the Millikin Career Center
