It's the holiday season, when we start making lists of the gifts we want -- and of the pros and cons of the jobs we have. The end of one year and the start of a New Year is the time when just about everyone takes stock of where they are with their work, and whether they are where they expected to be.
So as you get ready to transition from your Christmas list to a wish list for your career, ask yourself these five questions about your company, your colleagues, and your personal game plan for what comes next.
1. Does my company stand for something -- anything -- special?
2. Am I excited to see my colleagues when I show up for work on Monday morning?
3. Do I have a voice at work -- does anyone who matters listen to what I say?
4. Am I learning as fast as the world is changing?
5. Am I making enough money?
