IT Staffing in 2013 ―Keep Your Momentum Going!

It’s week one of 2013, and it’s time to set yourself up for success. There’s something about a brand new year that invokes change and inspires motivation within us. It could be the fireworks and confetti that explode into the air or maybe just the simple feeling of a fresh start. Either way it encourages us to hit the reset button and adjust our focus on being better and more efficient at everything we do. However, finding that motivation in the New Year can be quite the challenge, especially after weeks of friendly gatherings and holiday festivities.

As an IT sales professional, it’s difficult to start off strong when clients and prospects are not quite organized or ready to carry out staffing plans. But, don’t let it slow you down! Carry your momentum from 2012 into the New Year in order to set yourself up for success in 2013 ― even if you are being told, “we don’t have our budgets set yet” or “it’s too early to discuss our staffing needs.”

Sound familiar? Are these calls curbing your New Year enthusiasm? It’s true these moments of discouragement may cause what Dan Fisher of the Menemsha Group calls a “Holiday Hangover.” But, don’t let it get you down. Be prepared for these hurdles so you can clear them with ease and keep your momentum going in 2013.
