CAREER PLAN REVIEW
HOW DO I GET THERE
Career planning is a process for becoming aware of self, opportunities, constraints, choices and consequences. It helps in identifying career-related goals and career paths to provide the direction, timing and sequence of steps to attain a specific career goal.
Once you set your career plan, review it. Being self-awareness is certainly a major part of the foundation of success and happiness. Your ability to secure a job and ultimately a career in which you will thrive depends on how well you can match yourself with the opportunities available. Review your career plan as follow:
- What do I want to achieve within the next six, twelve, eighteen months?
- How and when will I achieve my training and education goals?
- How and when will I gain the additional skills and experience I need?
- How can I expand my network, and by when?
Having established your clear career goals and how to achieve them like all good plans it is in need of constant monitoring, review, analysis and feedback.
As you progress, record your achievements and share your successes.
Also, periodically review your overall Action Plan to make sure it is still tracking with your interests and goals.
Re-evaluating your career plan and goals allows you to make adjustments based on changing economic and personal circumstances.
Life happens! If you are temporarily derailed, get back on plan as soon as possible.
Or, if opportunities arise that change your career planning, do not fret. Your Action Plan can be adjusted.
