I need everyones help. I am trying to start off a paragraph on career goals and for some reason I'm drawing a blank. Any suggestions? I am going for a management role and I need to write about my career goals for the next 5-10 years. Obviously I would like to advance within my career and I definitely want to be here for the next 5-10+ years, but I'm struggling putting that into words....
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
I know this isn't the best topic to put out there but I really need some help!
I appreciate all responses and examples.
Short term and long term goals. I like using the GAME format. Gather Facts, Analyze, Make a Plan, and Evaluate the plan. In writing goals they have to be realistic, attainable, measurable and accountable. You don't want to make a blank statement like. I want to be my boss' boss. You have to have a plan to do that. It must include a way to measure success, it has to be realistic. Like you can't say that you want to do something that is very hard in a week or two. It must be attainable, and specific. I don't know what your doing this for so I may be including a too detailed plan. You will need an action plan as well if this is a formal goal. Give me some more info and I'll see how I can help you more.
Thanks so much for the info and no it is not to detailed. That is the info that I need and I still need more.
I am writing a letter of application and one of the questions reads "Describe your career goals for the next 5-10 years". I basicly want to continue educating myself with managerial courses or attend workshops, but at the same time, I am hoping that by year 3, I can be in a supervisory role. By the way, I work in an office. Nothing fancy, but they are offering a program for people who are interested in becoming leaders within the organization.
This is where I struggle... I do not know how I should start my paragraph on this. I need help constructing a very nice formatted paragraph.
Would I start:
I hope to see myself....
My career goals for the next 5-10 years include....
And then I would need some filling to that.
I feel like I'm the kid asking my parents to do my homework, but I really need some insight on this.
If you were asked this question, how would you answer it?
I'll pm you.
