Implementing Career Success: Strategies

https://images.app.goo.gl/zwJU8d1vQdEQzvTz9t

Career success takes a long time — months and years — of planning and focused implementation. Are you practicing these steps in your internship, workplace, and classroom today? (If you haven’t yet met with your FDU career coach, please e-mail me today at msanyal@fdu.edu).

1.  Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses (self-awareness is KEY to career success). 

2.  Advance Your Skills (constantly address your skills gaps, & learn to TALK bout your growth with facts and specifics).

3.  Know the Company (if you are a student not yet doing an internship, get to know & TALK in-depth about the industry you will belong to).

4.  Understand Your Boss (if you are a student not yet doing an internship, build professional relationships with your faculty members — they will be writing your recommendation letters soon!)

5.  Demonstrate Your Worth  (as a student, stand out in class so your faculty members know you, and your work ethic. They will be writing your recommendation letters soon!)
