Who is responsible for career development?
Career development is an engaged activity and you must be active in your pursuit for a quality career – not just when you’re looking for a job. In fact, it’s even more important when you are not.
In this episode we visit some common beliefs about career development and job searching:
Belief #1 – I shouldn’t look for a new job now, we’re headed into a recession.
Belief #2 – I don’t need to build an external network.
Belief #3 – I don’t talk to recruiters, if I need a new job I just throw my resume up on the job boards.
Belief #4 – I only update my resume when I’m looking for a job.
Belief #5 – I don’t need to develop myself professionally, my employer will let me know if I need additional training.
You are the CEO of your career development and you own your personal marketability. Stay in charge of your career- don’t just passively manage it. Until next time, to your success!
