Career Expert Recommends a "Career-Cation" to Review Career

Career Expert Dr. Randall Hansen outlines a 5-step process for how to conduct a mid-year career review -- and explains why everyone should do it.

Kettle Falls, WA, July 05, 2012 --( July not only marks the beginning of the second half of the year, but also a traditional time when many people take vacations -- and a perfect time to step back and reflect on your career accomplishments, says a noted career expert.

"We all must be invested in our careers -- in the paths we're taking and in the direction we want to move toward," said Dr. Randall Hansen, publisher and CEO of Quintessential Careers, a comprehensive career development site. "Hitting July -- mid-year -- makes it the perfect time to reflect on the first half and make adjustments for the second half."

"This 5-step process for conducting a mid-year review is fairly comprehensive while also not being a huge burden," Hansen noted. "Many folks should be able to conduct the mid-year career review after work or on the weekend."

Hansen takes it one step further, recognizing the frazzled personal and professional lives many people live. "Because many people just don't have the time to focus on their careers, I'm suggesting people consider a 'career-cation' -- carving out some time during your next vacation to focus on your career."
