Networking more important than getting pay rise: survey

SINGAPORE: Eighty—five per cent of Singaporean professionals surveyed actually plan to make a New Year resolution related to their professional life or career this year — up from the 67 per cent who did in 2012 and in contrast to how only 54 per cent of them make New Year resolutions in general.

Four hundred and fifty 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 rise.

LinkedIn also asked Singaporean professionals what they wanted to achieve with these professional goals and the top choice was financial security and growth, followed by having stronger workplace performance and better work—life balance.
