A successful career is a combination of hard work and the value you create within your organisation. This means that the more valuable the management and your co-workers see you, the better your chances of being successful within the organisation.
Unfortunately, not everyone recognises the importance of increasing their professional value. Many workers today ‘just do their jobs’ and are happy to be able to meet what is minimally required of them. These are usually the people who are first to go when a company decides to downsize.
Our value and the reputation we create within our organisations are the very reason why it is important to learn good personal career management. These days, we can’t just rely on our company’s human resources department to lead us to our career direction. If we are serious about succeeding professionally and finding job satisfaction, we have to take charge of our career development.
People who understand their career direction are most likely to succeed. They are the ones who know what they want and how to get it. Finding our value starts when we realise the importance of what they do and the reason why we’re doing it. When we acknowledge our purpose, we will be motivated to do our best at work.
So have a sense of direction! Draw your own career map. Do not be contented with mediocrity. See every challenge as an opportunity to stand out and increase your value at work.
