Certain studies indicate that the primary reason for people leaving their job is that they don’t feel appreciated. Following not too far behind is another good reason: they are stagnating from the lack of opportunity to grow as a person and as a professional.

How can you find the right career where you can develop and grow? It may be easier than you think.

Let’s look at three steps you can take to accomplish your goals.

1. Know Thyself

Before you can identify the career that suits you best and where you can develop and grow, you first have to do some self-evaluation. Take the time to consider the personal factors that will help you choose the right career path and make sound strategic decisions over time. 

Consider these steps as you prepare your career path:
  • Outline your career goals
  • Create a five and 10-year plan
  • Review your previous experience
  • Compare job requirements to your education
  • Assess your current skillset
  • Take note of your interests
  • Identify your core values
  • Consider your compensation needs
Once you’ve invested the time to do this, you are better prepared to research potential career paths. When you do locate the organization that meets your needs, revisit these steps periodically to ensure that your goals are still achievable and aligned with your interests.

2. Find The Right Company – 5 Questions You Need to Ask

Once you’ve completed your self-inventory, it’s time to talk with different organizations that align with you as an individual. As you interview with various companies, you’ll be asked by the interviewer if you have any questions. Here are five good questions to help you decide if that company could be a place where you can develop and grow:
  1. How do you like working here? 
  2. Does teamwork play an important role in your company?
  3. What makes people want to stay here?
  4. What opportunities for advancement exist with your company?
  5. What type of training and continuing education do you provide?

These questions will give you a good feel for how much they value their employees, if they are committed to the growth of their employees, and if this is a place you believe you could be happy and thrive.

3. Take The Plunge!

Many good career opportunities have been lost because of indecision. You’re never going to find the perfect place to work, but you can find the right place to work. Once you’ve identified that place, be decisive, get started, and don’t look back. You will have found the right employer to help you develop and grow.
