Fancy a New Science Job in 2010?



New Year’s resolutions aren’t just for keeping fit or quitting smoking. Why not use yours to commit to finding yourself that dream science job in 2010?

Here are some tips to help that New Year’s resolution last longer than any other:

  • New Year is a great time for reflection, so think about why you really want a new science job. Why is it that you want to move on? Are you satisfied with your career path? What is it that you don’t like about your current job?  What do you like about your job?
  • Be careful not to set yourself unrealistic goals. If you do, you might become demotivated when you don’t achieve those goals.
