In one of her slash/career views on career
transitions, Marci Alboher offered good
insight for thinking, preparing for what
we do next and some things we
might overlook.

She offered:

-   set and re-set challenging career goals.  Move
between related segments. 
          +  Examine different outlets for your
              creativity and expertise.

-   trade places with people as part of your
personal growth– research to manufacturing,
operations to staff, applied research to
staffing 

-    consider all size of firms, that translates to
looking at the big picture for your next steps
not just narrow, ‘the way it is usually done”
steps or changes.

-   mentor and be mentored.  It takes time but
is essential for personal growth and grounding. 

-    be current in your appearance and early
meeting gestures.  This is so often overlooked
and hard to overcome when not done well.
