How to earn more next year, than you did this year.

Most of us, would like to see our income increasing, year on year and presumably, if you are reading this article then that applies to you as well?

Like all things in life that we aspire to, it helps to stack the odds in our favour of a successful outcome by having a plan – so how should you be planning, in order to earn more next year than you did this year?

The first step, is arriving at the decision, as to whether your career is moving in the direction that you want and whether you really are achieving job satisfaction. Do you feel valued and appreciated by your current employer, do you feel they understand you and your aspirations and can they provide you with the career path you are seeking? We know that people that feel passionate and appreciated generally, operate at a higher level than those that don’t. When did you last have a formal assessment with your immediate report / HR team. If not recently, then this is long over due for both parties to feedback to each other and for agreed goals / promotions to be set for your performance next year and the rewards you will earn for achievement.

You may, have been feeling for some time now, that you wish for a slight or radical change in your career, in which case investigations need to start now as to what qualifications you will need. Where can the training and education take place and what time lines are you committing to. Book your slot for an immediate start - after all, dreams are only dreams but action will make them a reality. Talk to your employer ( if there is scope to do so ) about how they will be able to benefit from your enhanced and/or new skills and qualifications. Agree, increased remuneration scope, that can be achieved upon completion of your program. If it looks unlikely that they can provide you with the additional earning scope, start registering with head-hunters and recruiters who will know your extra value upon completion and will be only too happy to make introductions to alternative employers.

You may have reached the conclusion, that you can only see a brighter more financially rewarding future by changing employer and in which case you should be ensuring you are match fit for this journey. Your CV needs to be completely up to date, polished and matching your linkedIn profile. Remember to include all your contact details, complete employment history together with achievements. Don't forget a professional picture and web site links to the companies you have worked for. 

You should ensure that you are registered with all head-hunters / recruiters that specialise in your profession / geographic area of employment. That they know your preferences and are sending you automatic vacancy alerts on a regular basis. You should join any social media groups that are aimed at your profession, where you will see job advertisements and collaborate with your head-hunter to ensure you are introduced as a potential candidate, for as many suitable roles as possible.

It is not sufficient to simply hope, that someone is going to some how, telepathically know, of your potential and possible availability for their company. It is down to you to communicate and show willing. Try following one, or all of the steps above, and next year should be a big improvement financially on this year.

Best of fortune!
