The 7 Career Goals You Need to Succeed

How to Set Career & Salary Goals You Can Achieve This Year

5. Tracking Accomplishments

It doesn’t matter if you’re asking for a raise, getting a performance review, or updating your resume -- at some point you’re going to need to list out your accomplishments on the job.

The tough part is when this happens six months or a year from now and you need to go back from memory. Make it a point to start -- right now -- a simple document where you track your accomplishments throughout the year as they happen. Additionally, make sure to save any materials that you might use in a portfolio or a website. This includes printed items, emails, photos, videos, and screenshots.
