Welcome to 2012 on Career Chick Chat!

Get organized. Lose weight. Make exercise a habit. Quit drinking. Find a new job. Just some of the most common New Year Resolutions that make the list every year. Any of these sound familiar?

At least a few of these are on my list. And I want to blog more often to make Career Chick Chat a truly valuable career development resource - well that's one of my big goals for 2012!

Hopefully, my goal will help you achieve your career related ambitions (or at least help you set them!)

On that note, I'd like to welcome you to Career Chick Chat for 2012 - where there will be lots of Career Hot Tips, ideas and tactics to help you get the most out of your career - for both this year and to set you up for your future goals and aspirations.

With the right plan - 2012 can be a year of growth for your career, your business skills and the achievement of your goals.

'Experts' seem to agree that the economic outlook for 2012 is uncertain (which means they don't know?) but there are signs that there is jobs growth in the U.S., with 200,000 jobs added to the economy in December 2011, which is a positive.

Whichever way the economy goes - if you have skills, plans and contacts you are going to be in the best position to either take advantage of job opportunities or ensure that in a declining market you are a valuable commodity.

These are the variables that form part of the C.O.D.E for career success - a formula to unlock your career success - which will be the subject of many blogs this year!

I would love to hear about the topics or areas you would like discussed here - so please feel free to add a comment, send me a tweet (@karenadamedes) or visit me on facebook www.facebook/careerchicks - and I'll do my best to make sure we cover the topics requested!

Later this week I'd like to chat about how to stick to those career New Year's resolutions you might have made or want to make now (I don't think there is any statute of limitations on resolutions - and anyway, it's still January!) Right now though - I'm off to the gym - 'cause that get fit/lose weight resolution has appeared near the top of my list this year!

Look forward to lots of chatting in 2012!

- Karen
