Surefire Strategies to Grow in your Career

Nimish Thakkar, Career Management Coach

Career growth is a planned enterprise, where an individual has to take affirmative steps toward specific goals. Despite what common misconceptions dictate, building a successful career doesn't require complex Machiavellian strategies or extreme political tact. Dedication, devotion, and discipline -- combined with common sense strategies -- provide ample ammunition for building a successful career.

Consider the following strategies:

1. Networking

Networking is not just a job-hunting technique. Active network is a critical component of career management and it is one of those activities, which if pursued consistently and effectively, will produce maximum rewards. It is very difficult to reach higher goals without a support system, but when an individual's talents are supported by a strong network, success is inevitable.

Consider developing a solid networking plan that makes effective use of both online and offline networking. The more networking events you participate in, the faster your network will grow. Imagine the possibilities.

2. Establish your expertise and reputation

If you are -- or can become -- good at something, write about your area of expertise or interest. From trade publications to blogs to ezines, publishing opportunities exist in abundance. Regular speaking and writing will position you as an authority in your profession, and once you have established your expertise and reputation, opportunities will, almost of their own accord, present themselves to you.

3. Invest in your professional development

The modern workforce thrives on information. Webinars, conferences, blogs, free-trade publications, ezines -- learning opportunities have never been so easily accessible. The wonders of technology make it possible to learn new information without ever having to leave our homes or offices. The drawback of the information revolution, however, is that the journey from cutting-edge to obsolete has been shortened dramatically. In such a state of affairs, it is very important to stay competitive by regularly investing in professional development and knowledge enhancement programs.
