This Week in Work segment returns! This is the segment of PB where we help you crack the professional code and discuss stories and topics relevant to the workplace. This week we’re talking about five things you can do in 2018 to get both your work and money up. We cover:

  • Using your bonus and merit increases to jumpstart your 401k while lowering your taxable income for the year
  • The benefit of the "electronic envelope system" -- using multiple bank accounts to accelerate and clearly manage your money goals
  • Tips for tracking your annual accomplishments in a way that will help you and your manager prepare for your performance evaluation
  • How certifications and continuing professional education can help you stand out from your peers and competitors
  • The difference between a Personal Advisor, a Mentor, a Coach and the other resources you need to develop in your career
  • Five ways to update your LinkedIn profile from "useless" to "You're Hired"
