When was the last time you sat down and reviewed to what extent you are meeting your career objectives? I don’t mean your annual review with your line manager; I’m talking about your deeply personal career goals and intentions.
Wherever you are in your career journey, it is a good idea to periodically analyse your current position against where you want to be. When you dig a little deeper, is everything on track and working out as you expected or do you need to make some changes in order to meet your goals?
To help you measure if your automotive industry career is progressing as you envisaged when you started out, we have created the Copeland Automotive Career Checklist that will provide you with a snapshot of whether you’re on the right track.
When you work through our checklist, it is essential to remember the reasons you got into your current role in the first place:
- What did you set out to achieve in your career – did you plan on making a certain amount of money in a specific time frame?
- Was your move into your current role related to what was going on in your personal life? For example, were you about to leave home, get married or were you saving for a deposit for a house?
- And also, what is important to you about the company you work for? Do you fit in with your company’s culture? Do you have a good working relationship with your colleagues and managers?
If your current role or company is not fulfilling you in the way you had hoped, or if the pace has slowed down recently, it could be a sign that you need to start making some big career decisions – is it time to move organisations?
