Between now and Thanksgiving, you have less than eight weeks (face it, not much is accomplished in December). Which professional goal is your priority to accomplish before December 31, 2014?

If you’re looking for a new job – ramp up your efforts.

If you’re looking for a promotion, meet with your manager BEFORE he/she turns in a 2015 budget request.

Consider these profession tips to start moving in the right direction.

Stay enthusiastic during all stages of the interview process – many companies are taking longer to make a hiring decision.

Be prepared for an interview by practicing your response to “Can you tell me about yourself?”

If your boss takes credit for YOUR ideas, make it harder for him to do so by voicing your ideas in front of others.

If you want your work colleagues to like you, then don’t use them – get to know someone BEFORE asking for a favor.
