It's A Brand New Year… Are You Ready? Some Advice to Start it Off Right

By Sonia Vera, Managing Editor
Happy New Year! Are you ready for 2012?
Now is the time for self-reflection, reasonable goals and making transitions. Gather your notes, schedule your time judiciously and don’t forget to take care of yourself. Exercise some, but not too much. Keep your mind entertained with positive endeavors and remember to embrace whatever changes may come.
Look for information in the Programs & Networking section about the new format for the General Membership meetings on Monday mornings. Also, don’t forget that the annual PSGCNJ Job Fair is scheduled for March 14th. If you cannot attend, perhaps a friend or relative might find it valuable.
This month’s edition will help you refresh and refine your pitch, navigate the DoL grant process and start your own blog. Leverage whatever you can to make yourself stand out from other applicants. Send those interview suits to the cleaners; make sure they fit well (perhaps ask the seamstress for help). Order more business cards and thank-you notes. Print up some extra resumés and portfolio documentation. Most importantly, remember we are here to help and guide you.
