InterQuest Group's 5 Top Tips for Career Development

  1. Qu ter In p’s rou tG es CAREER PATH
  2. 1 INTERNAL PROGRESSION SOMETIMES THE NEXT CAREER STEP WON'T REQUIRE SEARCHING FOR A NEW JOB AT ALL. MANY PEOPLE MISS OUT ON PROMOTION AND PROGRESSION WITHIN THEIR CURRENT COMPANY, SIMPLY BY NOT SHOWING ENOUGH INTEREST. LET YOUR MANAGER KNOW THAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING YOUR CAREER; ASK THEM WHAT THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE.
  3. 2 IF YOU DECIDE TO LEAVE YOUR CURRENT ROLE, MAKE SURE THE TIMING IS RIGHT. DON'T LEAVE A JOB AT THE WRONG TIME. IF YOU ARE CLOSE TO COMPLETING A CONTRACT OR ARE AT A CRUCIAL STAGE OF A BIG PROJECT, LEAVING YOUR JOB FOR SOMETHING ELSE MAY NOT BE THE BEST MOVE - IT COULD LEAVE A NEGATIVE IMPRESSION WITH YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER.
  4. 3 SOMETIMES IT IS BEST TO TAKE A SIDEWAYS STEP IN ORDER TO TAKE A STEP FORWARD FURTHER DOWN THE LINE. IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN YOUR ROLE FOR A LONG TIME WITHOUT PROGRESSING, THEN THE SAME ROLE IN ANOTHER ORGANISATION MAY OFFER THE CHANCE OF DEVELOPING YOUR CAREER IN THE LONGER TERM. ALWAYS DISCUSS CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESSION IN JOB INTERVIEWS.
  5. 4 CONSIDER RELOCATION IF THE ROLE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IS NOT AVAILABLE LOCALLY, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO CONSIDER LOOKING FURTHER AFIELD. IN SOME INDUSTRIES THERE ARE LOCATIONS THAT HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF OPPORTUNITIES. IF THIS IS THE CASE, CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS TO RELOCATE FOR THE RIGHT ROLE. THIS COULD BE YOUR BEST OPTION FOR DEVELOPING YOUR CAREER TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
  6. 5 CONSIDER A CAREER CHANGE IF YOUR WORK IS NOT CHALLENGING YOU, OR THE PROGRESSION PATH THAT LIES AHEAD DOES NOT SEEM LIKE ONE YOU WISH TO TAKE, CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS FOR A CAREER CHANGE. EVALUATE YOUR CV AND CONSIDER HOW YOUR SKILLS MIGHT TRANSFER TO ANOTHER INDUSTRY OR ROLE. SOMETIMES MAKING A CHANGE IN CAREER DIRECTION IS EASIER THAN YOU'D THINK AND CAN BE A GREAT WAY OF FINDING THE KIND OF PROGRESSION YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
