Now is a great time to set some career goals for the New Year. To get started, take a look at these tips to help make the most of 2018 and years to come.

Develop a new skill
Continuous growth is essential to success, so you should work to develop new skills as often as possible. Not only will this increase your value as an employee, it’ll also open doors to more opportunities. These are some of the reasons why VA provides education support and other assistance that helps team members build on their talents and move forward in their careers.

Focus on networking
From social media sites to industry events, there are many ways to connect with people in your profession. Pursue these avenues regularly, as they can lead to useful knowledge, job referrals and more.

Maintain a healthy work-life balance
Your career is important, but you should always make time for your personal life and take good care of yourself. At VA, we offer flexible scheduling, generous paid time off and other benefits that help employees keep everything in balance. It’s all part of being at our absolute best for our patients.
