Building a great career is a long process. Whether you love your current job or can't wait to get out of it, unless you are planning to retire, you will need to take a next step. But for most of us, figuring out what to do next feels overwhelming. There are too many options and there is no instruction manual. At Whomi, we want to change that.
At Whomi, we want to help you develop a career that your truly love. After all, you will likely spend 90,000 hours at work in your lifetime, don't you want to enjoy it and feel rewarded for it?
Let's start by saying, congratulations! If you are here, you've already made the first move toward discovering a career that you truly love! We see four major steps to figuring out the next step of your career journey. And while the steps are the same for everyone, your journey is unique because you have your own personal goals, preferences, and interests. We want to help you develop your journey.
We've found the most important step to developing your career to commit to writing down a plan! You would be shocked to see how many people we have seen make radical changes by forcing themselves to write down a goal and take steps toward it. From the oil and gas finance manager who moved into high tech product management to the single mom who more than doubled her income by declaring her goal, we've seen it all. And you can do it too.
We've organized a way for you to keep track on your personal career plan.
We'll get back to that soon. First, let's go through the four steps to your next career milestone:
- Define your goal for your next career step [link]
- Prepare to meet your goal's career requirements [link]
- Get experience to increase your value [link]
- Land your ideal job [link]
Does it sound like a lot of work? Well, it is. BUT, you can do it. And we're here to help you. Just take it one day at a time and make a little progress each day. We'll send you reminders encouraging you to keep going.
OK, enough of the overview... let's get going! Take one small step today. You can take more, but try to do at least one. You can take an action from the four steps above or do something very simple like introduce yourself to the community with a short post on your Home feed or inviting friends to join you. Let's be honest, a community of strangers can certainly be helpful, but people who know you make it even better. If you're ready to get even more insight on your goals, you could even request personal feedback from your friends. They answer 6 simple questions about your best qualities and you get insights for your next career step.
What you do isn't as important as building a habit to do SOMETHING! Don't wait. Take action to discover a career you truly love today. And you can keep notes and track your progress on your personal career plan.
Welcome to Whomi! We can't wait to meet you!
