New year = New career? Staffing experts believe the job outlook is strong for 2023. Hiring trends show a lot of promise with tech and biotech companies having the greatest demand for jobs. Also, several warehouse and manufacturing jobs have raised wages to attract more applicants.
Goals vs Resolutions
Many popular new year resolutions are actually goals, not resolutions.

Be realistic: Goals can bring happiness but can easily cause discouragement if you don’t hit your goal on time.
