Only a few days are left of 2015. While many of us will be using this time to reflect on the year that was, the resolutions that are long forgotten, and new promises to stick to them in 2016, some of  us are looking forward to the upcoming holidays and all its festivities with family and friends.

More specifically, everyone is looking forward to all that time NOT spent in the office...

Make the most of your time in the office with a little introspection. You can find ways to promote yourself in 2016, how to boost your skills or learn the essentials of networking with important people.
