Career growth is your own responsibility

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Where do you see yourself professionally in 2 years?

<insert your answer here>

How are you going to get there? Have you already made moves towards this goal? Some people think that their manager or company will look out for them and put them inline for the next step. The things these people can help you with are resources and potential opportunities.

Every step you take today should be towards what you want tomorrow. Paths may change but it’s good to know that it’s not fixed in stone. These people and assets can help you but the first move and every move in between is yours. Keep opening up opportunities and be ready to jump on it when they come around.
