How Do I Figure Out What's Next?
Are you just beginning your career or simply looking to make a change, but having trouble figuring out what is next?
Sit down and think about what you want. Make a list of your goals and priorities, both professional and personal, to find alignment between the two!
Professional Priorities: Think inclusive and open company culture, transparency with management, mentorship, clearly outlined upward progression, work-life balance
Professional Goals: Step into management, take on more duties in your role, start your own company, get that promotion
Personal Priorities: travel, settling down, planning a wedding, saving for your children’s college
Personal Goals: Buying a new car, purchasing a house, paying off student loans, locking down that vacation
When beginning your job search, you should have a clear understanding of what you are searching for and how this next adventure will align with your goals and priorities.
The better understanding you have, the better you will be able to make an educated decision on what type of job you want or what type of career you want to make a switch in to.
