Considering your options in today’s job market or looking to make a career move? Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Unsure of where to start? Well fret no more! Here are a few steps you should consider taking before making any definitive career development moves.
First and foremost, come up with a career plan and map out your goals. Really think about what your interest are and have a clear picture of where you see yourself in 5, 10 or even 15 years from now. Determine where you want to be at the end of your career and list the goals needed to attain in order to get there.
Try not to worry too much about making your goals definite. Let’s face it…life happens. There will be times where you’ll find yourself reevaluating your goals and making changes along the way. We all stumble upon obstacles throughout our journey. They are what make us stronger and fight harder for our goals. Therefore, remember to always pick yourself up and keep on trucking.
Next, analyze each goal you have set and determine the actions needed to be taken in order to achieve them. For career development, your goals would most likely entail some sort of education and/or training. Research, research, research! Figure out what the educational and/or technical requirements are for your ideal position. Then, decide which school or training center will help you best in meeting those requirements.
Finally, in efforts to further your career development, you may want to consider attending workshops or seminars that will help you to develop both personally and professionally. Also, try out an internship. While attending school, make a strong effort to land one in the industry of your career choice. Additionally, seek out a mentor in that field who is willing to advise and guide you along your path. Or, perhaps consider hiring a career coach.
