6 Easy Ways To Take Charge Of Your Career

Far too many of us become complacent when it comes to our careers. We settle into the routine of office life and are subsumed into the tedium of menial tasks and meetings, losing our forward and upward momentum. If you are looking to reclaim that fire and ambition that once drove you to excel, stop being passive and use these 6 easy ways to take charge of your career:


  1. Keep The Resume In Shape - After being employed by a company for two or three years, most people feel safe and thus stop updating their resume, assuming they either won't need it or can throw something together last minute. However, imagine how much you forget each day; if you're not tracking your accomplishments as they happen, you'll forget the details. And you should also be adding and removing references from time to time, reflecting your growth in the company.
  2. Build A Network - Your network should be far more than just the people you eat lunch with at the office or the people you went to school with. Seek out people working in the same field as you on LinkedIn. Connect with industry experts over Twitter. Uncover groups and professional organizations that cater to the needs of your industry. Create a network that can provide you with leads and job offers when it's time for you to take the next step in your career.
