4 step Career Clean-up

Spring is in the air, and it’s time to get some career cleaning going on! 


This season isn’t just for cleaning out your closets and dusting off your window sills; it’s also a great time to declutter your workspace, and maybe even your career aspirations. If you’re not sure where to start, this article will give you some ideas.

1) Declutter your workspace

First, let’s think about your workspace. A cluttered and disorganized workspace can be overwhelming and stressful, but you can create a workspace that is clean, organized, and conducive to productivity very fast. 

Remember that decluttering is an ongoing process, so no need to get everything done at once. Start by removing everything from your desk and the surrounding area. This will give you a clean slate to work with and help you identify what needs to be kept, discarded, or stored away. Take the chance to clean your devices as well.

Next, let’s talk about your career. Spring is a great time to reassess your goals and aspirations. Take a moment to think about where you want to be in your career, and if you’re on the right track to get there. 


This could be a great time to network with colleagues, join professional organizations, or seek out additional training or education to help you make decisions and achieve your career goals.

Spring cleaning can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Remember to approach it with a positive attitude and take it one step at a time and before you know it, you’ll be ready to take on the rest of the year with a fresh perspective and renewed energy!
