This week is National Careers week – so what better time to get tips from our HR Manager on successfully building your career…
Be patient, a career is for life
It’s not often people nail down their dream career from their first interview. Solidifying a career for the future takes time and effort, and a lot of the time it’s the knock backs that make us become stronger candidates for future roles. Don’t lose hope if for every 20 CVs you send out you only hear back from one. The key is to be patient and not give up.
Learn the career ladder
It is important to have a sense of direction with your career – where do you see yourself in ten years time? Establish the end goal and do plenty of research to find out how you can get there. Most of the time you will find that this means starting from the bottom of the ladder. It might start off tough and you might find yourself doing monotonous tasks that don’t feel even closely related to your role, but if you set yourself goals you will begin to achieve and consequently start climbing your ladder.
There’s always room for improvement
Self improvement is the secret to success. There’s always room for improvement and you should focus on always trying to improve yourself and what you can offer no matter where you are or what the role. Learn all you can, in business miracles do not simply happen. Success is the culmination of excessive learning and levering that knowledge to set goals then seeing those accomplishments through to the end.
Do something you feel passionate about
It’s the most overused phrase in the book, but if you choose a career in something you love and feel passion for, you will never work a day in your life. If you enjoy your job you’re more enthusiastic about what you’re doing therefore more likely to achieve goals and strive for success. Nobody wants a job they dread going to every morning. Play to your strengths and pursue a career you can really excel in.
