Creating Your Career Road Map

Creating Your Career Road Map Advice

If you don't know where you are going then it doesn't matter which road you take because any road will lead you somewhere.

The first thing you need to do when choosing a career is to decide where you want to go and what career road you will want to take.

If you are unsure on where you want to go then read our other blog post on questions to ask yourself in finding your ideal career.

Once you have figured out the path of your direction then start making an initial career road map.

  • Do you understand the entry job description you will need for this career?  If no, then do some job description searches to find out what it requires?
  • Do you have the skills to do this entry job?  If no, do you need to get a degree or certification for it?  If yes, then start looking at education or internship programs for it.
  • What companies are offering this entry job?  Different companies may have different availability depending on their current staffing needs.  If you know this company has regularly posted this position in the past then see if you can submit your resume or CV for them to keep on file until a new position opens up.  If a company does have the position available then research the company to see if it is a good fit for you and if so then apply.
  • Do you know anyone in this position or at the company you applied at?  Getting practical advice from someone who can give you first hand knowledge may help you steer away from unforeseen road bumps!
