It’s October, Halloween, Fall, and Back to School/Career Development

Hello OctoberSkeletons, witches, pumpkins, haystacks, apple cider, pumpkin spice, and everything nice. It’s October (and almost Halloween) and Fall is here (sorta, it doesn’t quite feel like it yet here in the NYC metro area). Either way, it’s back to school.

Here are some ideas to get you started on your career development this Fall:

  • Search and add: Now that the summer lull is over, look for meetups, conferences, workshops, and networking events of interest and add them to your calendar.
  • Chat and catch up over [insert beverage of choice]: Reconnect with your colleagues after the summer months. Schedule coffee (or hot chocolate or apple cider or tea – the options are limitless) meetings.
  • Brush off the cobwebs: Update your LinkedIn profile and your master resume.
  • Career plan strategically: Check out our career & professional development blog posts and our leadership & career development presentations.
  • Check in: Make a list of upcoming projects and work, so you have a better idea of what’s on your plate for the next few months or year and know what continuing education and professional development opportunities you can do energy- and time-wise.
