Setting Personal Goals for 2021 – Our Top Tips
Everyone has unique talent and skills which deserve to be nurtured and valued, and when you work in a job which values your time and effort you will feel a strong sense of personal success. Before starting your job search, you should ask yourself the following career goal related questions:
1) Where do I want to work?
2) What do I want to do?
3) What skills or knowledge do I need to get my desired role?
Now that you’ve got a clearer picture of what you want to do, you should start setting personal success goals. There are a few key outcomes for personal success, and when deciding on your goals you might like to use the SMART method. The 5 SMART objectives are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound. So, if you aspire to secure a job in construction, you might want to consider the following:
Specific: You should try to be as detailed as possible. Instead of simply saying “I want to work in construction”, think about the specific roles which interest you the most and how the experience of working in this area/s might benefit you both personally and professionally.
Measurable: Think about how you will measure your goal. Perhaps you secure a short-term role working on behalf of a labour hire company or local contractor, you can now tick your first goal off the list. Now you could measure your personal success by how much you’re able to learn on the job and how many new skills you pick up.
Attainable: If you have a desire to work in construction, you may need to obtain a few tickets or complete some short training courses to get you job ready. It is important to remember that your goal is attainable, and that support is available to help you achieve your goals.
Relevant: Maybe you have a bigger goal in mind of eventually being a project manager. Over your time working in construction, you will pick up valuable skills which will prove their worth in the future and aid you in achieving your future goals.
Time-bound: Think about whether you want to make construction your life-long career or whether you’re just looking to explore it before re-evaluating your feelings after some time in the role.
