Purpose of this Effective Career Management Blog

Are you a manager, administrator, technical professional, or support staff who wants to…

  • Advance your leadership and your career.
  • Find a new direction or a more suitable career path?
  • Survive the next round of pink slips and come out as a winner?
  • Get that competitive edge in searching for your next job or position.
  • Learn how to market yourself, be a better boss, deal with work politics and so much more.

This blog will help you revitalize, reposition, or retool your career for the constantly changing marketplace and workplace. It will help you develop career resilience – having the skills, knowledge, attitudes, and actions to be in control of your career success and satisfaction.

The benefit of effective career management is to put you in the driver’s seat of your professional and managerial career. Done well, it will help you to:

  • Make better decisions during your entire career – from just starting out to taking leadership to making a positive impact in your work life.
  • Leverage your strengths, your network, and your resources to create a career, not a job, security in an insecure world.
