6 Ways to Boost Your Career Prospects in 2024

So, if you’re already planning to get ahead on your future prospects and wondering what you could do to really switch gears up, 99 Bikes has you covered.

Below are their hot tips to make a positive start:

  1. Join or Start a Club: Got something you’re passionate about? Join a local club; if there isn’t one, start one! This demonstrates initiative, teamwork, and organisational skills. Managing events and coordinating group rides can foster invaluable project management abilities in the workplace.
  2. Attend Workshops: Attend workshops or courses on the things you’re interested in and curious about – especially if they relate to your chosen career ideas. This demonstrates your commitment and motivation to keep learning and staying current in your knowledge.
  3. Community Outreach Projects: Collaborate with your school to organise community events or fundraisers for causes that matter in the community. Engaging with the community builds strong communication and interpersonal skills. These experiences showcase your commitment to supporting others and social responsibility.
  4. Online Certifications: Explore online certifications – even entry-level and introductory courses can be a great way to keep building your passion for your future career. Employers appreciate candidates who take the initiative to enhance their skills independently.
  5. Participate in Competitions: Join local or regional competitions where you can that connect to your passions and hobbies. Whether it’s flying kites, playing Dungeons & Dragons, air guitar or cycling – it all counts. While not directly related to careers, competitive participation builds resilience, discipline, and a strong work ethic – all transferable skills that can set you apart in the job market. Plus, you’ll have something cool to talk about at interviews!
  6. Seek Opportunities to Build Experience: Seek internship opportunities with local companies or participate in virtual work experience programs online. Both will help you translate theoretical knowledge into practical skills. Internships provide real-world exposure and help you develop a network within the industry.

Ready to Hit the Career High Road?

Take advantage of the diverse opportunities available, and you might find yourself on a path that aligns with your passion and propels you toward a successful and fulfilling career!

So, why not make 2024 the year you pedal your way to success? Embrace the “New Year, New You” spirit, explore the bicycle maintenance sector, and let 99 Bikes guide you to a brighter future.

Happy cycling!
