You may not realise it but the way your career develops over time is almost entirely under your control. Certainly you can opt to stay in your current job, work hard, hope your efforts are recognised and some fantastic new opportunity falls into your lap.

However wouldn’t it be nice to know where you are going and have a timetable for achieving your personal goals?

I am not advocating any rash or dramatic changes but I can suggest some simple steps which will help you enormously:

Number 1

Take some time out to answer a few questions about yourself and your future, for example

What do you want to be working at in the short, medium and long term?

Where do you want to be doing this work (location, target companies, employment type)?

What steps should you take in 2017 to help deliver your career targets?

Number 2

Write down a plan of action for developing yourself and your career with target milestones

Number 3

Review and update your plan regularly, at least each quarter

Some of these actions are not easy to complete, especially on your own without support – we in Torc have developed a self analysis toolkit taking you through each stage quite painlessly.

You are invited to contact the office to get a copy – after all you and your career are well worth the effort!
