A lot has changed in 2014. From world news even down to our iPhones doubling in size, we look back and realize just how far we’ve come in these last 12 months. At Sherpa, we’re in the business of looking forward. We strive to anticipate employment market trends, and we work toward helping you, our clients and our employee placements, look to the future as well.
As we embark on yet another year of connecting you with jobs in North Carolina, we want to help you set your career path for success in 2015 with a few tips on how to set career goals.
Long-Term Career Goals
As yourself these questions:
- What do I enjoy doing?
- What am I good at?
- What characteristics of a job are important to me?
Once you have an idea of what you like, want, or are good at, use those as a starting point for thinking about long-term plans and jobs in North Carolina. Consider specific jobs or roles that fit those ideas. If you’re already in a profession or are happy with your career, think about how those answers can help you advance.
Short-Term Career Goals
Ask yourself questions like these:
- What skills do I need to have in order to achieve my long term goals?
- What knowledge do I need?
- What industry should I focus on?
These short-term answers are like the Sherpa that helps you climb the mountain. You may not see the end in sight just yet, but you know you’re heading in the right direction.
