4 Ways to Advance Your Career This Summer

How to Enjoy Summer While Still Getting Ahead at Work

3. Take a Step Back

Have you been so focused on your day-to-day job that you haven’t looked up from your desk in 6 months? Plan a long weekend away to really take stock of where you are in your career. Ask yourself some honest questions:

  • How has your job changed in the past year?
  • When was the last time you got a raise or promotion?
  • Is your career advancing the way you want it to?
  • And simply, do you like doing what you’re doing?

Much like you should bring your car to the garage for a 30,000 mile check-up before going on that multi-state road trip in the peak of summer, every professional should step back and make sure they’re on the right road to success.
