Career Management

The difference between entrepreneurship and career management-intrapreneurship-is that your way of thinking about these topics is focused internally. Its visibility is not limited to the organization’s final service or product is a product you like. How visible are you? Does senior management understand their unique set of skills and ability to achieve its objectives? Are you aware of changing needs and moods of your company, very sensitive to the changing winds of policy, budgets, the philosophical positions of key individuals? What are you doing to anticipate and respond to these changes? Do people still think of you at the level that would be hired, or are aware of their greater capacity to contribute to the organization? Do you have evidence of active “clients”-does the word spread good will to the organization by his boss, peers, subordinates? Of course, there is some discretion and good taste is required here. Nobody wants a gloating egotistical, self-promotion on your computer. Do you know how to effectively market yourself to those around you? Are you the one who finds a problem and make your boss aware of it? Or is you that is the problem, comes with some major corrections, and then there is this problem? Do you get easily on tough problems and complain about the impossibility of the situation? Or do they persist relentlessly until it is resolved the situation? Have you ever be exposed to new opportunities to learn transferable skills? Think about your skill set and personal property, like a house. Are you the kitchen renovation or will try to sell the old house as it is? If your skill set is not so far in a highly competitive market, your kitchen outdated / obsolete skill set will be a much harder sell.

How portable is your career? It’s what you’re doing worth it just for your organization? Or are you learning skills that can be packed in the suitcase and take the road race at the next opportunity? Many of the most transferable skills are what the human resources used to call “soft skills”: technical people and time management, the ability to gain acceptance from their peers, subordinates and superiors and capacity to develop strong relationships with customers, ability to think ahead of the competition. Even if this project will be managed is truly unique to a company, what are you learning about the outlook for the management or direction you can take with you?
