How to Maximise Your Career Over Chinese New Year

maximise your career

The inception of Chinese New Year likely means a celebration and rest from of all your hard work from the past twelve months. However, it also marks a seminal moment in the calendar to reflect on your goals and consider how to maximise your career, regardless of whether you’re in Fintech or not.

Here are our tips to boost your career development in the Year of the Pig:

Improve your networking circle

Networking is proven to be an effective way to boost your long term career prospects. Attending events will see your circle expand far beyond your current work, and helps widen your horizons of the opportunities available in your field. And don’t treat it as a necessary evil to find your desired role, instead embrace it for the useful communicative tool it is.

With many options out there, it can difficult to pick out the must-attend sessions of the year. But fear not! We have done precisely that, in our Top Events Guide for 2019 and our frequently-updated Events Calendar. So, start being proactive already.

Update your social media profile

This one is pretty self-explanatory, but we’ll convince you anyway. An up-to-date social profile, particularly LinkedIn – but feel free to use your platform of choice, has shown to be a key consideration for firms looking for fresh talent. Asia, according to Smart Insights, is spearheading this recruiting movement across industries.

Assess your career path & goals

If you’ve been ultra focused on your job at hand, it can be remarkably easy to lose track of your career path. If you haven’t already, assess whether the likely trajectory of your current role matches your ultimate desires, and if it doesn’t – set new career goals. You don’t have to remain unhappy or unfulfilled in an industry you don’t enjoy.

Make a conscious effort to Upskill

Decided to learn new skills to improve your industry path, or even thinking of jumping into a different sector entirely? Well, don’t feel intimidated! Emerging technologies and new sectors are competing in markets across the global economy – and we’ll always take every opportunity to advise you to upskill and transform your career.

For instance, finance has changed plenty in the past decade, and there’s no indication this next decade is going to be any different. And so, professionals have an obligation to seek the most comprehensive and accessible methods to survive in the changing global industry. This means an a learning approach that provides a clear framework of emerging technologies and their foundational concepts of Fintech. Few courses achieve this more comprehensively than Around Fintech in 8 Hours, our no-prerequisite foundation course designed for novices and professionals who want to join the flourishing Fintech scene. Join the Fintech revolution in Finance today! Additionally, we’re running a special promotion in honour of the Year of the Pig – check out our social feeds for more.
