Today I had the opportunity to attend the career planning session and I would recommend that everybody attend it, even though (s)he has very clear opinion about what career wants to pursue. The main reason for attending this session was to learn as much as I could for what I want to do when I grow up! And actually it was very helpful.
The most informative part of this session was the list with the skills selector where you can see what are your skills via a wide variety of attributes. I always had a problem to identify my strengths/skills when I was asked to and this excersise was very helpful because I actually saw that I'm better than what I thought before!
I know that I still have a long way to go with identifying what exactly I want to do in my life, but today was a good start. As for my next action points
- I will definitely have a very serious discussion with myself and see what I really want to do
- I will try to find out how I can improve even more my skills (I'm studying business excellence of course and there are always areas for improvement) and
- I will start making my career plan step by step having short-term goals and see how to achieve them.
I wish I've used this sessions earlier this year, as they focus on you as a person and they seem like some 'for me time'.
