I want to come clean about the time I missed out on a great opportunity.
My #DirtyLittleCareerKarmaSecret is:
I heard of a co-worker who was promoted to a position that I would have loved. While congratulating her I asked how she found the position, because I never saw it posted and her answer felt like a slap in the back of the head. She said, “My manager asked me what I wanted to do next and I asked for it”.
I learned two things from this conversation:
1. If you're not using your 1:1 sessions with your manager to plan out your career path than you're doing it all wrong.
2. "Don't Ask, Don't Get" If you're not clearly expressing your goals, then you'll never#ClaimTheCareerYouDeserve
If you're not having regular 1:1 sessions with your manager, then schedule them and then #ClaimTheCareerYouDeserve!
