It’s all very well advocating the concept of “managing your career proactively” but what does that mean in practice; what do you actually have to do?
In essence it's a 6 step process: the process itself is relatively straightforward, but the steps themselves require mental toughness, persistence and tenacity. The steps are:1 Define who you are.
You do this by building your personal brand in writing and by identifying your top three career drivers.2 Define your career goal.
This involves the definition in writing of your short-term, medium and long-term career objectives.3 Decide how to approach the market.
Knowing what you want, you now need to decide how to market yourself effectively. What do I need to do in addition to applying for advertised jobs.4 Hone your product.
That means 'you': work on becoming the best you possible; the best written you, the best verbal you and the best mental you.5 Be persistent.
Do something every day, no matter how small, towards steps 1 to 4.6 The really difficult one.
Don't stop doing number 5 - ever!#proteuscareermanagement #careerplanning #careeradvice #careercoaching
