Networking and learning new skills more important than getting a raise: Singaporean

85 percent of Singaporean professionals surveyed actually plan to make a New Year resolution related to their professional life or career this year. 

This is up from the 67 percent who did last year and in contrast to how only 54 percent of them make New Year resolutions in general.

450 professionals were involved in the survey by LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network. 

The top five professional goals that Singaporeans want to achieve in 2013 are professional development through learning new skills, network more or build more professional relations, getting promoted or move into a leadership role, getting a new job or career and getting a pay raise. 

LinkedIn also asked Singaporean professionals what they wanted to achieve with these professional goals. 

The top choice was financial security and growth. 

It was followed by having stronger workplace performance and better work-life balance.
