Career Planning

If you're thinking about pursuing a new career path, know that it will probably be one of the most challenging and rewarding times in your life. You look forward to the possibility of doing something you have always longed to do, fulfilling your personal vision, helping others, increasing your income, or any combination of these or other benefits. You might be interested in getting more training or going back to school to get an advanced degree, starting your own business, or finding that exciting new career that has always eluded you.

What you were taught in school may no longer apply to the job searching skills needed in today's job market. The rules have changed, from the resume to the interview and more. Don’t be caught with an “objective statement” on your CV or bothering the interviewer with questions you could have researched on the web before hand.

Most people simply don't last long working at jobs that they loathe. Career planning should involve a self-assessment and deciding what you like and don't like in a job. You might also seek out a career advisor or take an online survey to determine your personality traits and the types of jobs that might be right for you.

A well thought out career plan can be a great tool for monitoring your career progress. It cannot be over stressed the value of having a realistic and workable career plan. With a career roadmap, you can monitor your career progress and over time you can make adjustments to your plan as your situation changes.

Most people simply don't last long working at jobs that they can't stand. Your career plan should always involve taking a hard look at yourself and determining what you like and don't like in a job. There are also a number of online surveys that you can take that will help identify your personality profile and the type of work you'd be best suited for.

A successful career transition usually begins with careful planning. One of the first things to do when planning on a change in career is to evaluate the prospects the new career has to offer you, both personally as well as professionally. This also may include forgetting the skills or experience that you have acquired from your old job.

Finally, take decisive action toward realizing your new career goals even if you feel a little uncertain. Clarity and new opportunities will unfold when you take decisive action toward your new career goals. So aim high, keep your goals always in front of you, and take decisive action in the direction of the successful new career you’ve been dreaming of.

Career decisions don't always carry the luxury of foresight and the opportunity to weigh all options thoroughly. Is the course of your career at a fork in the road? Take the time to weigh all your options. An informed decision always takes into account your career, your personality, and your family.
