How To Build Your Career Effectively




A career is more than your job.

It is the baggage that you carry with you throughout your life. It represents your experiences, studies, qualifications, personal traits and much more.

People often change jobs for a number of reasons. Although it is good (and healthy) to move on to different employments and try out new experiences, one should also be careful on how and when you are going to create a careful action plan and start working towards your goals.

It is always useful to hold a particular target and try work your way towards it. This will help you make a lot of wise decisions, and avoid any unnecessary blunders.

Muovo would like to share with you the following useful article, courtesy of CV Tips on how you should start planning your career - now is the time.

1. Learn to know your weak and strong points.
What do you want people to remember when they read something about you in a hundred years' time? Do you want to be rich, famous or known for changes made to the workplace, society or any specific field, or do you want to be remembered for a specific skill? Are people more important to you than objects? Do you want to settle at one place or like to move around?

2. Think about the things you dream about.
There must be something that you like to do very often! Is this your passion? If you're not sure, ask yourself: What do I like doing in my spare time?, or What is it that I have wanted to do all of your life?

Also, consider those things you dread whether it is change or routine, working with your hands, seeking advice, dislike in people, animals, or loads of activity. People differ and knowing what makes you tick and what irritates you will help establish your main interests.

3. Think about your skills.
Do you have the necessary skills for your career path? If you don't have, will you be able to acquire these skills through work programs, tuition or experience? If you like singing but cannot hold one musical note, then perhaps you should reconsider or decide whether it is worth all the training. Look at other aspects such as your age, gender, community, religion, race and the society. This also includes your family and friends and the importance you place on certain values.

4. Choose a career path.
It doesn't mean that you have to select a particular job and stay with it. Rather look at the broader spectrum of jobs available in a certain career field.

5. Set a career goal.
A career goal helps you to stay focused and motivated. Plan how you will get there and make space for alternative routes. The career journey should be just as rewarding as reaching the goals. You need to enjoy every step of the way even when you start at the bottom. 

However, keep your career goals flexible since there will also be disappointments and things out of your control. Your career goals will change with alterations in you environment and personality.

Reevaluate your goals every two years and make adjustments as needed. If you don't have any future plans, it means you are drifting and will miss many opportunities along the way to be the best you can be. Your career will always have a learning curve. Make the most of it and when you find that you are not satisfied anymore, sit down and reevaluate your position and career goals.
