Springtime is generally seen as a time of renewal and rebirth, the natural world around us transforms and this invigorates us…..a time to spring clean our homes, lives, perspectives – maybe a new start!
Much like a flower a career needs time to grow and develop – the right nurturing and input can have significant importance. To grow and develop your career in the right direction you should take time to evaluate:
Where are you?
-Are you happy in your current role but would prefer to move companies?
-Are you happy in the company but would like to move department/role?
-Would you like to relocate in order to be closer to family/city/countryside?
Assessing the above and more will help move on to the next:
Where do you want to be?
-If a new company is on your radar, what is their profile – this detail will assist in the search for more opportunities in a similar companies.
-Promotion within your department/company or a different career direction?
-a new location, where and why?
How do you get there?
-do you need to upskill in order to attain that promotion, will your employer support your training?
-for new companies and locations, research will be your biggest asset – know your market and follow the leads.
Sometimes a sideways step maybe necessary in order to move forward – enabling you to grow in a new environment. So just like our homes spring can be a time to take stock and refresh our careers!
Enjoy the coming holiday whatever you are doing and come back invigorated for your next move!
