4-min read: Wondering where to go next?
Do you feel as though you are at crossroads with your job or stuck on the career ladder, not knowing where to go next? Or maybe you are experiencing disharmony at your current job, or feeling lost as you rejoin the workforce after maternity leave? If you said yes to any of these questions, you’re not alone.
Through the right planning and action, each of us can develop the ability to achieve our career goals and take control of our own advancement. As part of our Supercharge Your Career series and ahead of our workshop on November 19th in Singapore, here are 3 quick tips for your path to career success:
Plan ahead and wisely
Success doesn’t happen by accident. To achieve this, it is important for you to craft out your own personal career development plan. A career development plan will give you clarity and peace of mind knowing that your career is headed in the right direction.
This will ensure that you are developing the necessary skills to advance in your career using the right resources. Start with the end in mind, set goals for yourself, and choose a realistic timeframe for you to reach your target.
Be open to new opportunities
The simplest way to find opportunities is to network so ensure that you make time to build and nurture your relationships. Networking can not only help you land a job faster, but it can also give you a competitive edge throughout every stage of your career.
When it comes to networking, quality definitely trumps over quantity as it what you do with your connections that really counts. Build sustainable connections by organising and tracking your communication to make networking easier. The point of networking is to benefit mutual parties so before you approach anyone, consider what you can offer or assist them in terms of their career, business or personal endeavors.
Seek help and pay it forward
A great way to seek help is to find a mentor who can help advance your career. The criteria for a mentor should be based on skills, qualities, and experiences that you wish to include in your life. A career mentor can impart knowledge and expertise to contribute to your learning and development of skills.
Mentors can also facilitate professional networking by introducing you to influential individuals within academic and organisational contexts. These important career contacts can then lead to career success in terms of salary, promotions, and job offers.
As you advance in your career, you will gain more opportunities to inspire and guide others in theirs. Make time to share your insight and experiences so that you can support others in their careers and celebrate their success.
