Recently, I spoke to a candidate where I was asked this question:
Candidate: How do I earn more money? Should I stay in my company or join a new company?
Me: Noted. Can you share more about your current role now?
Candidate: I have been doing this for the past 5 years. This role is quite predictable and kinda boring at times because of it.
Me: What are you doing about it? Are you learning new skills now?
Candidate: I have done enough improvements in my role already. The problem is that my company is not providing opportunity for me to learn new things and sending me for external training.
Me: How do you see your career progressing in the next few years? Have you thought about it?
Candidate: I can still do this role for the next few years. Let’s see what my company can offer me.
Based on the conversation above, this is a risky situation where you are heavily relying on the company to provide opportunity and career growth. What would happen if your role is made redundant? Can you stay competitive in the job market?
If the answer is NO, I highly recommend you to focus on gaining experience and learning new skills. Plan your career ahead and seek for mentors to guide you along the way. If professional certification is required for your next career growth, don’t wait for your company to sponsor as it may be too late.
Let this post motivates you to TAKE CONTROL of your career.
Invest in YOURSELF.
You OWN your career.
