When was the last time you thought about your career? I mean really thought about it.
Many of us don’t dedicate a lot of time to thinking about our careers. However, when you spend more time at work than at home with your family… perhaps a little more time should be given to thinking about your career.
We have put some questions together that we think you should consider when considering how to build your career roadmap.
- Your Immediate Priorities
Think about what your current employer wants to achieve over the next few years. How does this affect you? What role will your position play in these goals and is this something you want to be involved in? Are there parts of your role that you like or dislike? How many of these parts will be involved in the goals of your employer?
- Your Career Direction
There will be major digital and technological changes in your job role. What sort of changes are these and how do you feel about them? These changes will result in some job roles and skills being more in demand than others. Where does that leave you? Consider the leading figures in your profession and think about them and their career. Do you like the direction their career is taking them?
- How Will Covid-19 Change Your Career?
Take the time to think about the coronavirus pandemic and how it has affected your industry or profession. Is your role busier than before or could there be a reduced need for the skills and attributes you bring to the business? If you have been working from home, is this something you have enjoyed? Is your employer looking to bring you back to the office or will you stay working from home? How does that make you feel?
By writing down these answers you’ll be able to see the career you are in and how you feel about it. This will give you a chance to decide if you are in the right career for you, and if not, you can change that.
