Planning your career

Have you developed a career strategy? Do you know what you are good at, what makes you special? Start with an analysis of your highest skills and qualifications and develop a vision of where you want to be in 5 or 10 years. This will most likely prove to be far more successful than sending out mass applications. Also, you need to match your education, skills and experiences to the particular needs of the potential employer. To decide what you want to do you must understand how your interests will translate into a career reality. Ask for advice, realistically assess your abilities, and get as much information as you can about your field(s) of interest

Check out the links and articles for further ideas. You are also very invited to take part in our career seminars at the IGC.

In general: network, use social media, find a niche. Specialize. Simultaneously build your knowledge base so that potential employers know about you before a position is even available. Be where the action is happening.

Good luck!
