What is Career Planning?


Career planning is an ongoing process which begins from understanding yourself, exploring your career options, choosing the correct occupation, getting a job, growing in that profession , undergoing promotions and career enhancements and finally retiring.
Broadly career planning can be described as a four step process:

Step 1: Knowing yourself by self-assessment
Knowing yourself by self assessing your interests, values, strengths, weaknesses, skills and aptitude. Understand your personality, characteristic traits, aptitude and emotional intelligence level. You can undergo psychometric and aptitude tests to learn more about yourself. 

Step 2: Exploring your career options
Explore and understand all available career options. RESEARCH, RESEARCH and more RESEARCH is the best way to know all your options.

Step 3: Decide on your career choice
Identify possible occupations, evaluate them and narrow down your choice. Don’t forget to look for the most recent and upcoming trends in that field of occupation.

Step 4: Take Action
Once you have narrowed down your choices, you can pursue any higher studies or training for that particular profession. Develop a job strategy, prepare a good resume and cover letter and prepare for your job interview.
