The end of one year and the start of another is typically when our thoughts start to turn reflective about our work and home life. Some of the questions we begin to ask ourselves when it comes to our career may include: “are you where you want to be?”,  “Did the challenges of this year highlight that you’re not entirely happy in your current job?”, “Are you where you want to be in your career?”,  “Did you level up this year and want to flex your new skills in a role with more responsibilities and a higher salary?”, “Have you been toying with the idea of change and been dissuaded that now is not the right time?”

All of these thoughts will be going around in the minds of many employees. Even more so this year, after such significant shifts have happened in both our work and personal lives.
