End of Year Goals to Kickstart your 2018



Now, we are in the last month of the year so you’ve probably begun to question where all the time has gone. It could be dawning on you that you haven’t achieved that goal you set yourself six months earlier, or perhaps you’re behind on saving for that dream holiday you were all set to go on. It all sounds pretty grim, right?

But, all is not lost and there’s certainly no time to dwell on circumstances you don’t have the power to change.

So, first thing’s first, it’s time to reignite that passion you once had. Here’s how to get back into the swing of things!

  • Be on the lookout for that opportunity that really gets you going!

Has that newly-listed job vacancy got your name written all over it? Get your CV out and give it a refresh, highlighting all of those key attributes about yourself that make you desirable. It’s always good to have a fresh pair of eyes view these documents too, so find someone who can spot errors that can often go easily missed!

  • Look for jobs in the right places

Don’t get me wrong, it’s always hard to get the momentum going when you haven’t got the funds to get you off your feet. Luckily for you, the creative sector is bursting with paid opportunities that you can get stuck into. A great place to start would be with Big Music’s Job Search. We are dedicated to advertising the latest entry-level roles in the industry.

  • Get a mentor

Last but not least, bag yourself a mentor. Having a guiding figure by your side is really important when you’re trying to achieve something. This doesn’t have to be someone who works specifically in line with your interests, it could be a person who is confident in your goals and believes in you, who is ready to help strategise your steps towards reaching them.

So, what are you waiting for? We hope this has given you some much-needed motivation. Now, all that’s left is for you to make the most of 2017 (what’s left of it), ready for an even better new year!
