Career management is a concept that is lost to many professionals, and that's such a surprise to me. Professionals usually are great at making plans for their children’s education, buying a new house, going on vacations, and organizing special birthdays. But seldom do they plan for how they are going to afford all of the above.
From my coaching, I learned that corporate professionals are under the misapprehension that their career progression is either in the hands of their current and future employers or the hands of fate. I also noticed from working with my clients that it’s easy to focus on the urgent and leave the important plans to be done later. With so much work piling up in the office and at home, making career plans are never high up in people’s to-do list. That is until you lose your job or the current situation at work becomes unbearable. The irony is not lost to my clients when I say, “you have spent decades making revenue-generating and growth plans for your employer, and none for yourself.”
So in this episode of The Job Hunting Made Simple, I discuss a few exciting concepts that contextualize career management, recruitment and selection, and job progression in a new light. My hope is always to make career management and planning more exciting and its importance more pressing.
If you have been following this podcast for a while, you have heard me compare executives to sportsmen and women. But in this episode, we are going in a new direction. We will look at how concepts from evolutionary theory, natural selection, and biology can be adapted to help you succeed in your career.
I enjoy bringing these concepts and others to my coaching sessions. I find it fun, and I enjoy building analogies that help crystalize ideas that may seem too theoretical when first discussed with my clients.
Repetition, patterns, camouflage, and reciprocal altruism: Fours concepts from nature that professionals can use in the job hunting journey to be successful in the recruitment and selection process.
