Who is responsible for your professional development?

Its obvious, YOU!

Its not your Human Resources or Personnel department or even your immediate Boss.

Each individual should take responsibility for his/her professional development, to remain employable in the company & in the industry where yo would like to make a career. Presently, I find in many organisations, learning & professional development budgets are getting restricted. So how would you work on professional development?

So whether you are employed or searching for job, I would suggest you can try the following initiatives, to address professional development needs;

1. Join & contribute to a professional association related to your industry. This will help you keep in touch with latest industry trends & happenings.

2. Have one major learning experience each quarter. If your present job is not giving necessary challenges, seek out other opportunities. Volunteer for a nonprofit, attend a conference, or take a class. Remember it should be your initiative.

3. Take a self-performance review. Look at your growth and performance. Be truthful about your strengths and weaknesses and what you should focus on in the coming year.

4. Write your resume / C.V. once every 6 months. Check if there is any addition in the experience, skills or references. Identify & work on the areas & skills for improvements.

5. Meet with at least two former colleagues each month. Discuss - seek information about your industry and how is it developing. It will help to keep track of opportunities & trends. This will also help you to be prepare for unpleasant surprises.

With experience of two decades, read "How we help our clients" to improve business.
