Last we met, we discussed how your first goal should be, well, having a goal to get to. A job or position or career that you knew, understood, and knew enough to reach for. That gave you something to plan for and something to start doing right away.
So once you have a career goal in mind, as noted, you should research it and understand it. This lets you create a path to that goal. Thats the next thing to explore in Job Basics
This may sound simple, but that simplicity is deceptive. It is easy to treat career paths as obvious, as ordained, or as something “everyone” knows. Real life, however, is filled with roundabouts, distractions, short cuts, and surprises. If it seems easy, there’s a good chance you don’t know what the hell you’re doing – or you’re very lucky.
Let’s not assume luck or competency, but focus on what you need to know and do to have a path to your goal.
