New Year’s Resolutions to Improve Your Communication Skills

This article was originally published on barbarapachtersblog.com.

It’s that time of year again – the time to make New Year’s resolutions. But instead of just going the traditional route – pledging to join a gym to work off holiday excesses – why not opt to give your career a boost as well? Resolve to improve your communication skills.

Yes, you read that last sentence correctly! How you communicate with others—whether in person, in writing, or online—has a tremendous impact on your career. It affects every aspect of your working life, no matter how good your specialized skills are in your particular field.

For the coming year, make these communication resolutions to enhance your career:

1. Resolve to keep your phone off the table when meeting with someone. Having your phone visible tells the other person, “I am so ready to drop you and connect with someone else.” It’s important to give people your full attention.

2. Take a presentation skills class. Work on becoming a better presenter. You need to get your point across. And if you do so effectively, not only does your audience gain information, but you look good.

Life After Midyear: The To-Do List You Don't Want to Miss

Even though Midyear is behind you, there is still work to do! Some of you may already be embarking on your onsite interviews. Others may be searching for new fellowship opportunities. Wherever you are, check out the list of post-Midyear tips below to make sure you continue on as strongly and confidently as possible. Best of luck!

Continuing to Establish Connections

  • Be sure to send thank you cards and/or emails to all team members who interviewed you onsite. Being so far into the process, these thank yous will help keep you fresh in the minds of those you met.
  • Never stop networking! Continue to reach out to fellows/industry professionals to learn more about how to get your foot in the door, whether it be through applying for contract positions or other fellowship opportunities that arise post-midyear.
