Making the most of online career advice
If you’re looking for online career advice you are not alone. Perhaps more than ever people like you are searching for ways to make the most of their careers and their lives. With seemingly so many options it can seem scary to make a move in any direction, when you aren’t sure it will lead to where you want to go. Perhaps you aren’t even sure exactly where you want to go in the first place.
I believe the most important skill in your career is one you are least likely to learn from any employer; the ability to go out and get the job you want. Mastery of the skills required will serve you for the rest of your life, giving you the freedom to pursue your
and your best life. The problem is that few of us are born with the know how, and so have to find out how to do it for ourselves.
Its only natural to seek help and advice in managing your
and careers. Just be careful who you listen to, you may end up like them. If that is something you like the sound of, then great. Otherwise, be vigilant. Its important to practice modelling excellence. Be sure to seek out online career advice from people who actually have achieved the results you want, and can show you how to join them.
Here are some topics you might like to consider when looking for online career advice;
Developing transferable skills
Think if your career as a marathon, not a sprint. Over the long haul, it won’t be your knowledge of a specific IT package, or business process that matters. It will be your ability to exhibit broader skills such as communication, confidence, planning and the ability to learn.
You are probably looking for online career advice to help you to change your current situation for the better. That is a great and worthy aim, and its important not to stop there, but to set goals, and create a clearly defined picture of what you want. Why? Because if you don’t know what you want, how will you know when your job search has been successful?
Look at the job boards and consider what you like and don’t like. Think about what you like and why. Then complete this
job search objectives
exercise to help you define your goals.
Confidence is one of the most important skills you can develop in your career and in life. No matter how good your plan, and how clearly your goals defined, they will come to nothing unless you have the confidence to set out to achieve them. You can learn more about how to
develop confidence for an interview
