Kevin Jacobs commented on Starting Fresh: New Year, New Career Goals 2017-01-11 12:41:42 -0500Professionally, I learned that I’m not exactly where I want to be in my career path. While a change in career isn’t in my immediate future, it helped me to analyze the work that I do and how it impacts my life and my community. My biggest success was being able to positively take charge of my health; my biggest failure is too personal. Each experience led me to understanding what I must do to take charge of my future and how I can make myself a better person, colleague, community member, and a better team player. My career is taking an interesting turn this year, so I’m dedicated to learning about it and maximizing my opportunities. I’m simply going to ask my employer to take a more vested interest in my professional growth as I take a more vested interest in our organization’s longevity.
"Help others. Have fun."
