As we launch into new year, you should be thinking about your career goals and what’s ahead. It may be improving your current job, learning new skills, getting a promotion / raise, or possibly a new job or changing careers. Take the time to think about what is most important in your career and how you should take action on achieving your goals. Think big but start small. Define a game plan that is feasible and manageable.
Your first step should be to reflect on the past as to what worked well and not well. Think about each thoroughly and figure out what led you to where you are today. Where are the gaps, what held you back and your weaknesses? Who can you help you hurdle those areas? Find a coach or friend to passively nudge you to keep you on track.
Like a friend will help you with career advice, Paysa was created to help you stay on track with your salary rate and finding job opportunities that match your skills. If salary is your sore spot, then understanding your market worth is key to getting more money. Keep in mind that you probably have more skills than your counterpart and that he/she is making more than you. There are a variety of reason as to why but your focus should be on getting your fair share. Simply put, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. And back it up with data from Paysa.
