The great part about living in this day and age is that the possibilities are endless. You can advance your career in many ways!
Below, we’re going to take a good look at ways you can advance your career in 2019 – start now, and who knows where you’ll be a year from now?
Create A Plan With Long Term And Short Term Goals
Start by creating a plan with both long term and short term goals. Short term goals can help you to reach your longer term goals, and both of them can help you to stay motivated in different ways.
The easiest way to make sure you’re actually moving towards your goals is to break everything down into baby steps. Baby steps are one major key of achieving your goals.
Breaking down everything into bite sized chunks will help you to see that these goals are actually achievable and manageable.
Approach Your Boss Or Manager
Explain your career goals to your boss or manager and see if you can come up with a plan together that will help you to achieve that.
You might need to set up a meeting with them, or wait until they call you for a performance review.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t keep your career goals to yourself. It’ll help if the person above you knows what you want to achieve, and it could make the whole process a lot easier.
See If There Are Additional Responsibilities You Can Take On
If you want to advance your career, then it might help you to see if there are additional responsibilities that you can take on. You don’t want to have too much on your plate, or do things that are outside of your expertise.
Especially things that you’re not going to get paid for.
However, taking on a few extra responsibilities will definitely help you along the way to advance your career.
Take Further Training
Taking further training could equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to advance your career.
You could take a look at compliance training experts online, or something else that you feel you may need to improve upon.
This could be in your own time, or you could discuss this with your manager or boss to see if they’d be willing to introduce something in the workplace.
They might even offer to cover some of the costs for you.
Build Your Personal Brand
Don’t forget to build your personal brand. Your personal brand can make you far more sought after by clients who come to your organization for help.
