While your job description may not be relevant in the future, you can ensure the skills you bring to the table are. With some forethought and planning, you can take control of your future career today. The key is not so much how skilled you are at predicting what will happen, it is how attuned you are to the early indications of change. When you realize that change is constant and you are constantly planning so you stay ahead of the game, you will find yourself in a great position to recognize and capitalize on opportunities that present themselves.
It’s not always necessary to address your career goals and objectives on your resume if you’re already established in your field and are just looking for another position that will require the same skill set. However, if you’re just starting out, or changing your career direction, stating your goals and objectives on your resume is useful and appropriate. Presenting this information in a short personal statement will give a prospective employer a good sense of your direction and why you would be an asset to their company.
Possessing a Backup
If you ever visit a wealth manager, the first thing that he or she will tell you is to invest your money in different nests. The same goes for our resources. One should remember that no company hires the person, but hires his or her services, which are critical resources for the company. However, if you invest all your resources in one place, there is a very good chance that you may not get the returns that you had hoped for. Therefore, it is suggested that you consider a second, parallel career as soon as the opportunity arises.
