As we near the end of the year, you may be thinking about what the year of 2023 has in store for you. If you are considering a career change in the new year, the upcoming Christmas break is a great time to assess where you are at in both life and work, and consider what is important to you in making 2023 great. 

Make a list of your non-negotiables on the following:
- Flexibility / Work Life Balance – what do you need to work in with family / personal arrangements? Considering location, work from home requirements, travel etc.
- Type of Company – size, sector / industry, reputation - do they have a strong employer brand?
- Working Environment – culture, team collaboration, open plan office, access to Directors/mentorship
- Position / Role – what does the next step in your career look like? Considering progression, remuneration, org structure etc. 
- Values – establishing your core values and associating with a business that is aligned with these

And secondary to this, what aspects of these are you willing to be flexible on? Make a list for both! 

Think about how your next career move will help you achieve your personal / life goals – both short-term and long-term. If you are thinking about all of this prior to going through the process of looking for a new role, you will have stronger clarity around what it is that you exactly require in your next role to be successful and sustainable.
