You Can’t Wait for Things to Happen

“With such a challenging job market, it’s more important than ever for you to orchestrate your career advancement to attain your short- and long-term goals. It’s no longer [true] that you can depend on someone else to advance your career,” says Barbra Bruno, internationally known trainer of recruiters, in an session of ExecuNet Master Class. You can’t wait for someone to do it for you.

Don’t rely on your boss to have your advancement all mapped out, and if you are a loyal employee who has strayed with your employer for more than 10 years, you have missed out on the raises you would have gotten from making moves every few years…and what happens if your employer is not as loyal back to you and gives you a cut because you’re now “making too much” or simply lays you off?

You’ve got to look out for yourself and your career advancement, because no one else is going to do it for you while you wait. Best you can do is always stay ready – something which takes intentional preparation – and contract with a Career Strategist to assist you in planning and execution.
