Career Planning Process
Filed under: Position Searching, Recruiters
Posted by: site admin @ 8:18 am

An interesting web-site was linked to my reading this
weekend.  It contained among other things, an
introduction to career planning step-by-step, by Dawn
Rosenberg MaKay

The article suggests a four step process for making
progress on career choices.  With current realities of
career shifts, this can happen several times for an
individual in his or her career.

It is hard to criticize the outline other than to say that
it could be considered an iterative process, rather than
a linear process, of self-assessment, developing options,
finding matches, and focusing targeted actions.  One
could mention the need for Resources in Career Planning
Process.

These resources might be
-  networks, 
-  mentors,
-  professional associations, like the ACS,
-  and recruitment firms.

Each of the items listed in the article has links in the blogroll
that could be helpful–
- self-assessment- mid-career assessment, leadership, motivation
- developing options-  great websites, networking
- finding matches- mid-career, job search glossary, internet use
- targeted actions- public relations docs, recruiters
