Yup, another year over and the pressure of another year is upon us. To be honest, ringing in a new year is exciting but at the same time extremely intimidating.
Recently, on my regular radio workplace segment on CJAD800 Radio, my friend, journalist and talk-show host James Mennie (Twitter @jamesmennie) asked an interesting question.

Too many people polish themselves up when they are seeking a new job and coast in their current job.
The reality is that it really doesn’t matter whether you are starting your career or seeking career mobility the pressure is on to be better, smarter, and current on just about everything about your career and to be career marketable.
