Networking, negotiating, communicting, leading, career planning – all skills critical to your career success, Mark says. But did anyone ever teach you these skills? If not, it’s okay. You’re in luck.
For many of us, from the time we’re in high school, we’re taught the value of making a career plan. Whether it’s a five-year plan or a 10-year plan, we learn that looking to and preparing for the future will help us in getting there. As we move into adulthood and start developing our careers, though, career planning continues to be a vital tool.
A career goes beyond just being your job. A career is your overall plan for where you want to be spending a good portion of your life, not just now but in the future! Moreover, the only way to get there, to reach that elusive life goal, is to be intentional and set forth a career plan.
