We all at one time or another have switched careers or made a decision to branch out on our own and become an entrepreneur. No matter what your current position, it is always great to get advice from a thought leader in the field of career counseling.
In my interview with career coach Tamara Raymond about her new book entitled “Careering-A Pocket Guide to Exploring Your Future Career” we discuss careering which by definition is the process of taking positive action in pursuit of a profession or venture. While this pocket guide endeavors to assist young adults with their career choices, it is also designed for the seasoned professional looking for advice in career advancement as well.
Some of the advice for the young adult looking for a job would be to engage in extracurricular activities such as internships programs, AP classes, and anything that would enhance your resume to a prospective employer to improve your chances of succeeding in your bid for the job.
I think that one of the most important aspects of this pocket guide is that it reminds of us the things that we frequently forget about when looking for a new career. There is no need to go it alone, there are lots of resources that we can access and call upon. Some of those resources include, networking, asking friends and family, community members, LinkedIn, career centers–there are a plethora of resources that are articulated in “Careering-A Pocket Guide to Exploring Your Future Career”.
I know you will be exposed to many options in your career search that you might not have thought about as a result of listening to my interview with author and career counselor Tamara Raymond.
