Looking for a new job in 2017? So are your coworkers

At the beginning of a new year, everyone's full of resolutions — to lose weight, to exercise, to be a better person. But what are your job hunting resolutions? According to a new CareerBuilder survey, more than one in five workers (22 percent) are planning to change jobs in 2017. Among younger workers, the numbers are even higher. More than a third of workers ages 18 to 34 (35 percent) expect to change jobs in 2017 — this compares to 15 percent of workers ages 35 and older.

Aside from finding a new job, the top New Year's resolutions workers say they're making for the office this year are:

  • Save more of my pay: 49 percent
  • Be less stressed: 38 percent
  • Get a raise or promotion: 30 percent
  • Eat healthier at work: 28 percent
  • Learn something new (take more courses, training, seminars): 26 percent

It's never a bad time to start moving your career in a better direction, and a new year is the perfect time to make a change. Here are five New Year's resolutions that can have a big payoff in 2017.

Expand your network: Contrary to popular belief, the best time to network isn't when you're looking for a job — it's long before then. Having a broad, diverse network already in place will make the future job search that much easier — plus, people tend to be happier to meet you when you aren't starting your conversation with "please help me get a job now."

Take on a new challenge: If you've been at it for a while, it can be easy to fall into a predictable pattern of routine and general complacency. Make the new year your time to shine, and step outside your comfort zone.

Get organized: It might sound cliché, but a little bit of organization goes a long way. Whether it's making a more concerted effort to keep track of deadlines and appointments or sorting through the endless files and folders on your desktop, instilling some order will help you keep on top of things.

Boost your skills and your role: Treat every workday like a school day. Be sure you learn something and use it to make yourself more productive. Occasionally think how you can go above and beyond. For example, are there projects outside your defined role you could help with? Be proactive; ask to join.

Keep your documents updated: Keeping your resume up to date is important for several reasons. For one, if a recruiter or a friend-of-a-friend calls out of the blue with a great job opportunity, you're going to want to have it ready to go. Plus, it's a lot easier to update your accomplishments periodically, when they're fresh in your mind, rather than trying to add in a couple of years of experience all at once.
