Just because your career goals don’t see to falling into place as planned, don’t lose hope.
Let’s face it. It’s easy to get side-tracked and even discouraged when it seems like your professional efforts are in vain.
However, when I reflect on life, nothing that was worthwhile ever came easy. Won’t you agree?
If you want change, accept that the timing is not always right, but there are things you can do to improve your prospects during the “waiting” season.
Remember that every career decision impacts your personal growth and development, so make the best decisions for your situation.
There is nothing like getting the inside knowledge from people working in the role you want to be in.
Schedule informational interviews, get real facts, learn what it takes to advance, ask if any special education, training or certifications will give you an edge.
If you are looking to change careers completely, know you will need to “walk” and “talk” differently and present your skills and capabilities in a whole new light.
Preparing for the right opportunity before it shows up is JUST as important as taking advantage of real opportunities.
