Today is Take Action Day. Okay, it's not an official holiday because I just made it up, but think about this; How many times do we whine about our job, our salary, our days off (or lack thereof?)
Today, I say you do something about it. Looking for a job? You're at the right place. Browse around, look at teh job listings and see what strikes your fancy. Need more money? Read some of our articles on asking for a raise. Browse the blog and work on getting the job you've always wanted. You don't need to take drastic steps (please don't quit your job on a whim!) but take a few minutes to figure out what you really want. Do you need a few more days off a year? Formulate an action plan - you'll feel better because you are doing something about your situation. Need to feel more challenged at work? Ask for a new task! The side benefit might be that you develop new skills, making you a better candidate for a promotion or a raise.
Like I said, no need to do anything drastic or hasty, but start thinking about what you want and how to get there.
Today is the Canadajobs.com Take Action Day - so figure out what you want and take action that will lead you on the path to a happier, more successful you at work.
