On today’s podcast, I have the opportunity to speak with Riana Topan, who is a communications fellow at the Aga Khan Foundation in Uganda. We discuss the benefits of setting career goals at the start of a new year and how to turn these goals into action. Riana graduated with an arts degree, which she later spun into a career in communications. She uses her expertise as someone who successfully changed her career path to offer great insight into how to set short and long-term career goals. Topics: Why we set goals in the New Year How to evaluate your current job status Envisioning your ideal future Making plans to achieve your career goals Putting plans into action Evaluating your progress Long-term vs. short-term planning What is a “medium-term” goals and why are they so important Building a timeline for each set of goals This podcast is courtesy of Pitch Graphic Design, a Toronto based firm, whose goal is to provide quality graphic designs for Public Relations.
