Every career has a life cycle. Every industry has a life cycle. Every company has a life cycle.
Whatever your career plan, you first need to get an understanding of where you stand on the continuum. Are you entry level (1-5 years)? Are you mid-management level (5-10 yrs)? Senior management (10-15)? Executive level (15-20 years)? It’s really good to do a quick self-assessment and know how your skills and experience stack up.
To become a subject matter expert in any topic, you must spend 10K hours in it. Like, I have well over 10K hours in coaching, after having done it for 15 years.
Careers are an “arc”. Know where you stand on it. That’s the first step.
13 brilliant templates for writing resumes, cover letters, bios, recommendations. It also has a killer job search spreadsheet to help you maximize your approaches to hiring managers!
