As we all make our plans, goals and New Year’s Resolutions for 2016, one of mine is to write weekly blog posts (at least 50 altogether) in the New Year on the topics of leadership, careers and resume writing. Here are 30 subjects I plan to cover, and I will add the other 20 topics over the course of the year.
Since I write these posts to be responsive and helpful to clients and others, please let me know if you would like any of them to be a priority (i.e., addressed earlier in the year), because they are particularly relevant to your current situation. You can leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
