Do you know where you are going with your career?
Have you a plan or a strategy when it comes to your career?
CVs that are consistent are key, and it goes without saying that those of you with consistency in your career either have a specific job in mind or have a scope of where you want to go in your career.
For example, those of you in a Medical Sales Representative job, do you know your ultimate goal when it comes to your job?
Do you have your sights set on a Country Sales Manager or even Managing Director job within your niche area?
Whether it is within Pharmaceutical Sales, Medical Device Sales or Capital Equipment Sales the end game is still the same and you should be very aware of the in house structure in place or indeed the industry structure, e.g.
Country Sales Manager
Key Account Manager
Medical Sales Rep
Know where you are going also in terms of what you can do to get yourself higher up that Career Ladder – for management roles you will need to have man management, team management and time management skills, so consider a time management or a people management course to increase your potential and to show your commitment to get that step higher up the ladder.
Regardless of your career, there is always a direction to go in – check out your company’s structure and research what you need to do in order to know where you are going! Once you have this figured out it gets easier.
