How to Create an Effective Career Strategy


It’s interesting to note that most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they do planning a job search or a career change. Creating an effective career strategy is critical to selecting the next steps in your career whether it is advancing with your current employer or taking on a new position with a new employer. Creating a career strategy will help you define the criteria that will ensure that your next career opportunity will meet your goals and expectations. It will ensure that you won’t make bad career choices by choosing opportunities that are not in line with your career goals.

This presentation will give you the clear understanding of how to develop your own personal career strategy including how to define target employers, how to define job titles that align with you career goals, how to track the career opportunities that you have applied for, how to use tools such as a résumé, a LinkedIn profile, cover letters and your network to gain the attention of employers that you are interested in.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn about creating a résumé that will stand out in the crowd
  • Learn how to research a potential employer
  • Learn how to refine your LinkedIn profile and then use it to connect to decision makers that are hiring
  • Learn how to track every position that you apply for and when to take next steps
  • Learn how to create a network and then tap into it to assist your job search
  • Learn about the skills that you will need to create and implement your career strategy

Each NCPMI participant will be given a complimentary 30-minute coaching session to use within thirty days after the presentation.
