Finding your career potential can be an easy thing to do yet still needs you to take some time to assess.
Make some time to sit down alone in a comfortable place. Take a piece of paper along with a pen and write down what you want from life. You don’t need a structure–just write with that sentence in mind: What do I want from life? When you are satisfied with what you have written flip the paper and write down what you want to achieve in your career. Be specific even if you aren’t even in that career yet, write your vision and thoughts down. If you already have a path towards that career that is a great start! Write down what you need to do to continue your success. If you know what you want to do but haven’t really achieved anything towards it take this opportunity to start looking at attaining that career you want.
First, do some quick research. Do you need a degree? A certificate? Specialized training or do you need to do an apprenticeship? You can find all the information you need to get things going via the net. The second step is reaching out to people that can help: career advisors, industry-related professionals and individuals in your own network. Find out all your available resources and find out what your career potential is.
If you are already on a clear career path you still need to assess what you know, who are your connections, and what you need to do to professionally grow. It is important to really think about what your current base can help you to the next level. Don’t be shy to reach out to people that can help and if you already don’t have a mentor it might be a good time to reach out to someone you trust and learn about your true career potential.
