Set a Career Goal and You Could Win an Extra Paycheck


When it comes to your career, have you thought about what you'd like to change? Maybe you want to earn more money or finally earn that promotion. Or, perhaps, you might be ready to switch careers and start over in a new field. Big career goals like that can be daunting — where do you begin? It's simpler than you think. Start with three words: Make It Happen.

To help you get started making your dreams come true, we want to invite you to join Make It Happen, PayScale's new online program designed to help you accomplish your career goals. Our program is all about action. Often, career advice comes in the form of lofty platitudes, like "dress for the job you want." We got tired of the same old advice. We know that making significant changes in your life requires action. To that end, we organized our best tips and tricks to help you achieve six common career goals.

Make It Happen

First, choose your goal:

Do You Know What You're Worth?

  • Get a raise: Learn how to get a paycheck that reflects your real worth.
  • Get a promotion: Move up the corporate ladder.
  • Get hired: Say goodbye to unemployment and hello to your career.
  • Find a new job: Put your skills to use with a new employer.
  • Be better at your job: Improve your performance with new skills or education.
  • Change careers: Making a drastic change? We’ll tell you where to start.

Next, watch your inbox for weekly emails containing articles, homework assignments and proven advice. Every time you complete a task, you can log into PayScale and check that item off your customized Task List.
