It's time for another career check-in.
It's easy to think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. It's also easy to get complacent in your current role.
That's why it's important to check in with yourself and your career.
Enter The Career-Saving Check List from Korn Ferry
Their research shows that learning is the #1 determinant of a person’s earnings for life $$$
In other words, the most important aspect of any job is what you’re learning to better position yourself for the future.
So here are 3 questions to ask yourself today to check in with yourself and see how your current job fits into your overall career path.
“Is my work meaningful?
Ask yourself: Are you engaged in what you are doing? Does the organization you work for have a mission/vision/purpose that you can support and feel aligned with?
Who am I working for? Your boss has the biggest single influence on your career development. Ideally, you work for a boss who is invested in your development, mentors you, and makes sure you get assignments that broaden your skills and experiences. A key consideration in any job is who you are going to learn from.
Am I learning? This one is huge although, sadly, too few people think about it. Are you gaining new skills in your job (and, if so, what are they)? While it’s impossible to predict the skills that will be needed in the future, one thing is certain: If you don’t learn, you won’t grow, and if you don’t grow, you’ll never progress.”
