When I first started thinking about blogging, I consulted with several great mentors/advisers. One wise mentor recommended a visual layout for my process of career advisement. While I struggled to visually lay it out, I did identify the six steps. Months ago, I tucked this process onto my “about” page, but I am digging it out now, because… it is an excellent reminder. (As you can see, I never completed visually laying it out either…)
Step 1: Assessment
Step 2: Research and information gathering
Step 3: Presenting yourself
Step 4: Project management
Step 5: Interview strategies
Step 6: Project update
It is a good reminder that managing our careers is a process. It isn’t a one time thing we do in panic mode when we are unemployed.
