Logic Of The Day: 16.04.2019.
With companies now demanding that candidates possess diverse skillsets, and with the rapid pace of changing technology, the most important career goal is to stay relevant.
Remaining in the same profession, let alone the same company, could lead your career down a dead-end.
It’s important to realize that if you don’t expose yourself to different work experiences or keep up with the latest advances in your profession, your skills will become out-of-date quickly.
Looking for dissimilar work experiences and breaking from a linear path is one of the best ways to cover all of your bases when it comes to what the future could bring. This might mean making a number of lateral moves, working for a competitor or going back to school.
While your career path will most likely not take a linear one, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t plan your next step. Thinking about what your next career move will be is crucial to ensuring you are investing in yourself and staying ahead of the job market.
Not making the right career move at the right time is one of the biggest career mistakes that you could make.
