It is exciting to graduate from college and get that first job. You’re starting your life and the whole world seems laid out before you. You know that accomplishing your hopes and dreams will take hard work, sacrifice, and a willingness to learn and listen to your co-workers and boss. Along with that knowledge, you have the fire and determination to not only survive, but to thrive.
Now, maybe you find that you are not getting where you want to be as quickly as you had hoped. You are wanting to step up and out of those first entry levels, but it seems like you are not getting the chances and projects you hoped for. You find yourself unsure about what the best methods and tactics are in order to get your career moving at the pace you desire, and being able to make the impact of which you know you are capable.
On the one hand, is it best to stay where you are at?
Does your current company recognize and value you and your skillset?
Does the company have the resources and programs to provide you with the opportunities to gain skills and experience that will allow you to continue to grow and add value?
What do you need to do differently to achieve success at a reasonably quick pace?
Are there attitudes, skills, or training that is needed to accomplish this?
How do you better work with and strategize with your boss?
What skills and experiences do you need to ensure that you are getting now that will provide a strong foundation for your next promotion, and the one after that?
What do you need to do now to stand out and get the promotions and opportunities you desire?
On the other hand, is it best to move on to a different company?
How do you know when the time has come to switch?
How do you leave your old company on good terms and in a professional way?
How do you identify what was holding your back at your old company?
How do you ensure that the next place you work matches yours strengths and personality better and helps you gain your desired success quicker?
What questions do you need to be asking in interviews to make sure that the potential employer is the best fit for you?
How do you best present yourself to ensure that other companies are excited to have you on board and are invested in your success?
These questions and concerns are not only valid, they are vital to you achieving the goals that you have set for yourself in the timeframe you desire. They are also the questions and concerns that an experienced mentor and coach can help you find the correct answers to in a timely and efficient manner.
