In today’s world, it is very important to choose careers wisely. Career planning provides the framework for thinking about the career you want. Take time to develop a career plan that will get you where you want to be professionally. You can do this by:
- Keeping an up-to-date resume
This is necessary as you plan for the future of your career and position yourself for opportunities as they present themselves.
- Thinking about where you want to go and where you are now
Take time to think about your current situation and the path you want to follow. Ask yourself questions like:
- Are you happy with your career path so far?
- What could you have done better or differently?
- What can you change in the future?
Understanding where you are and where you want to go will help with you short- and long-term career goals. Don’t forget to own your career growth. Invest in yourself by learning new skills related to your work. Attend training sessions, webinars and workshops that will help you learn and grow. Explore lateral moves to broaden your experience or find a mentor in a different department that you’d like to explore.
