Do you know where your career is going?
Do you know where your career is going? Staying with the same company college or school for life becomes rarer, more and more people aren’t sure. If you’re one of them, then maybe it’s time to take time out, sit back, and have a think.
It’s all too common to find that you’ve got into your current position through a series of coincidences, each one taking you a little further away from where you were aiming to go when you started. There is simply a huge gap between the jobs that people get and the jobs they wanted.
So what do you do? The answer is to finally answer to yourself that most elusive of questions: what do you want to be doing five years from now? Ten? Twenty? If the answer isn’t “what I’m doing now” then what you need is drastic action.
What you might not realise, though, is that creating a new career path isn’t as difficult as you might think. You may have to be creative with time and also sacrifice some non-essential activities for a while. With that time and a chance to explore and think, new avenues will open and old dreams can find fresh life.
Take the plunge.
