Career management once was simple and predictable:
obtain your education/training, land an entry-level position and the question of which career need never cross your mind again. You moved steadily up the ladder each step earning greater responsibility, title and compensation. You didn’t look for a new career or to change careers. For career advice or career guidance, your employer or family members provided you all the help and counseling you needed.
Not so anymore! Today’s career management requires a new skill set.
Are you ready and able to compete in this new arena?
Answer the following 10 questions to see if you’re prepared:
Do you know…
- how your talents could undermine your career success?
- the type of work activities you should NOT do?
- what industries are growing and which are dying?
- which skills are transferable (particularly military)?
- where to find the jobs that are never advertised, but account for about 80% of US hires?
- that your resume is NOT about you?
- how to market yourself successfully?
- how to ace the interview?
- how to evaluate a job offer?
- the unique value only you can bring to an employer?
If you confidently answered Yes to all 10 questions, congratulations—you’re ready for your Career Management Action Plan (C-MAP).
If you answered No to any of the questions, you have a critical information gap impeding your journey to a great work-life.
