The Four Steps to Success

Find Your Purpose: Most people spend a lifetime trying to find their calling in life. You must define the needs you want your career to meet and helping you discover the path that will best lead to fulfilling your purpose.

Identify Your Ideal Job: Since you were a child, people have probably been asking you what you want to be when you grow up. You might still be trying to answer this question. Identifying your purpose is one thing, but finding the ideal job to help you achieve your purpose can seem even more difficult. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are approximately 20,000 different jobs available in the workplace. To find the best one, you must take a serious look at yourself and how your characteristics match with the opportunities available. The assessments in will help you narrow that list of jobs from 20,000 to a mere handful (or at least two handfuls) by taking a close look at your interests, values, skills, and personality.

Develop a Career Plan: Even people who have an idea of what they want to do with their lives lack a career plan and well-defined career goals to get them there. You should make effective career decisions—choosing among the many alternatives you may be considering—and then help you develop a plan to achieve your career goals. You should also learn how to achieve the proper balance between your life and your career as you pursue those goals.

Take Action: A plan is useful only if you follow it. The assessments of plan will help you develop an effective job search campaign and take action. You should learn more about your personality style in searching for a job, what your job search strengths and weaknesses are, and ways you can improve them to reach your goals more effectively. Finally, you should discover what you can do to ensure your ongoing career success.
