Feeling stuck in your career? According to Fast Company, “Feeling stuck in your career isn’t just frustrating; it can be debilitating.” No matter your experience or age, managers, professionals, and executives can get “stuck” in their careers, wondering what to do next. The key to getting unstuck and moving forward involves asking yourself the right questions.
What do I really want?
First, discover what it is that you desire in your career and in your life. Is it a new position? Certain salary? Job title? Make a list of what you need as this will help in creating a vision of your ideal job.
What are my core strengths that I can leverage?
To define the next chapter of your career, you need to know the skills you want to use. Ask: what are my greatest accomplishments in my jobs or volunteer experience? This question will help highlight the skills you enjoy using most, and those that come naturally to you. Then, consider these skills when evaluating job postings to determine a list of best-fit careers.
As Fast Company states “the notion that we have to choose a single career path and stick with it from beginning to end is simply a myth.”
