Join me and iVillage to take charge of your career in a 30-day challenge. [TWEET]


Here at TheLadders, we like a good challenge. In the office, we’re always pushing ourselves to work harder so we can find the right person for the right job. Off the job, many of us train and compete together in co-ed sports leagues and triathlon competitions.  

Challenges can be good. They help us break down big projects into smaller, manageable tasks so we can take action. They can also motivate us when we’ve lost sight of our goals.

That’s why I’m proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with iVillage for their Take Charge of Your Career Community Challenge®. If your job search has stalled or your current position has lost its luster, now’s the time to spring into action!

Starting Monday, I’ll send you daily emails with loads of information to help you explore your career path, give your professional brand a facelift, build your career network, and negotiate your salary or raise. Whether you’re just starting out, looking for a promotion, or wanting to change jobs, this challenge will give you the tools and skills needed to get ahead in your career.

Sign up for this free challenge to get your Career Resolutions back on track before Memorial Day. Here are a few tips to get ready for the challenge ahead:

Pencil us in

It's important to dedicate time each week to prepare for a competition. The same can be said about our career challenge. Take out your calendar now and block off time over the next four weeks so you can put my tips into practice.

Join with a friend

I’ve always found it easier to stick to a routine when I’m not alone. Find a friend or loved one who’s reconsidering their career or search for a new job and sign up for the challenge together. Work on your assignments together to keep on track and make the process more fun.

Celebrate the milestones

It can take a lot of time to reach your goals. I’m going to give you a bunch of small assignments to work on throughout this challenge. Consider every assignment you complete to be a mini-victory towards your ultimate goal, and celebrate it as such.
