How to Map Your Career Path

Serendipity is great when it happens, but you might be better served to do some planning in advance. Nick Inglis writes for U.S. News and World Report with some tips on how to get ahead in your career. He finds that the steps taken to advance a career fall into one of four categories: gaining news skills or knowledge, new visibility or recognition, a new position, or switching paths altogether. Gaining visibility means shooting for awards or getting attached to high-profile projects as a means of developing name recognition. Switching positions is largely a matter of hopping lily pads, in that you should decide what kind of positions you should aim for, and how long to stay at them. For further breakdown of these ideas, you can read Inglis’s full article here: http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/outside-voices-careers/2014/01/23/how-to-map-your-career-path
