Advancing Tech Talent & Diversity Community Tip of the Day 04.21.21
Career Development: Advancing in your career requires a compass – knowing where you’re going and having a plan to get there. Work has evolved from simply a means for survival and substance into something that infuses significant meaning in our lives. Look at it this way, it’s where you spend at least a third of your day, 5+ days a week, year after year. You’ll form relationships, develop social networks, search for meaning and make your contribution to the world. Getting ahead and staying ahead is no easy feat, but indeed doable! Start by learning what could be holding you back. Get the perspective of mentors, trusted colleagues who have your best interest, and of course, your boss. Pick 1-2 things that you can work on and complete in the next 12 months. Take charge. Be strategic. Afterall, it is YOUR career.
