Careering: Verbing Careers

With people’s careers lasting longer than most companies’ lifespan.
Relying on a company for life seems more like an illusion than reality.

With most generation Y changing job more than 5 times in their twenties
and switching 5 careers (such as developer, project manager, accountant)

The word ‘career’ is as outdated as the newspaper’s ‘classifieds’


That’s why I like the term Careering, it makes it a verb & an action.
It something that you do, rather than something that you have.

So smart careering is to work to acquire new skill in-order to reach your next dream job.

You can take some careering actions:

  • Find a project to under take
  • Find opportunities to present your projects
  • Join & participate in a professional association (PMI, Toastmasters, AMA)
  • Volunteering
  • Become a hobbypreneur
  • Reading & commenting on blogs or any non-facebook social network
  • Start a blogs or a podcast
  • Go to conferences & meet people.
  • Switch jobs or roles in your department or company
  • Take on different responsibilities
  • Learn to delegate
  • Take classes & get a certificate
  • . . .

There so many ways to improving your skill & network that will broaden you & you careers

I’m not advocating to job hop, but to find & get opportunities … to create options for your future.


What careering steps are you going to take?
  Please don’t just watching TV or gaming, I tried that & it just doesn’t really help.
