Happy New Year, Happy New Career?

Will you be looking for a job in 2014?  The answer had better be YES!  The most successful professionals are always “career ready” and open to potential opportunities, even if they are satisfied in their current roles.  Why?  Because they know change is constant and tomorrow is never guaranteed (in life or in a company).

Being career ready doesn’t necessarily mean scanning job boards daily or going on regular interviews.  Rather, it’s about keeping your network fresh and your brand recognized (e.g., being active on Linked In, participating in external conferences and meetings, etc.).

As you head into 2014, ensure that you’re front and center for any hot opportunities that may arise.  Here are 12 of the most popular blogs from 2013 to get you career ready:
