Career Development is something that should NEVER stop for any professional.
Whether you’re an intern or a tenured CEO, there is always something you can get better at. I don’t just say this because it will help you move up the corporate ladder (or maintain your position on top), but rather because I believe we are most satisfied professionally when we are furthering our abilities and skills.
That’s why I loved Questions To Ask Yourself at Every Point in Your Career, a recent article that lists tangible questions you should be exploring regardless of how early or late you are into your career.
Below are the questions, but the article does a great job of providing insight into why each questions is so essential to your career development.
What do I want to be good at?
What skills do I need to be good at it?
What can I do to position myself in the best place possible?
What role does work play in my life?
What tasks invigorate me, and what tasks drain me?
Do I want to be a manager?
Am I progressing in my career the way I imagined I would?
Is this career allowing me to do what’s important?
In what ways can I still grow?
What legacy do I want to leave?
Again, I hope you will read the article for more background and insight that can be developed from each of these questions.
Which one speaks most to you?
