What is the ultimate career blueprint?
Proven research shows you need to identify all four of these factors to discover your optimal career role, if you want to gain lifetime career satisfaction and end work-life frustration, burnout, low pay and underemployment.
The key component that holds these four career factors together is you core identity values. They are the “glue” that holds it all together.
This straightforward career Infographic visually outlines the blueprint to help you find a career that is perfect for you.
How to find your best career
If you want to be in the short list of candidates to be hired, or determine if your job search is on the right track, you need to take the time to identify these four factors.
The confidence it brings and the focus you gain makes you head and shoulders above the crowd in any hiring decision or business venture.
What makes these four factors so powerful? They are powerful because they cover all the bases. They give you a complete picture of your optimal career.
By approaching your career plan with a 360 degree, full circle approach like this, you give yourself your biggest advantage: confidence in yourself.
For example, take the factor that deals with identifying your audience. If you don’t know who your audience is, how can you put together a plan to market your services to them? This even holds true when you are going for a job interview. You are auditioning in front of a key audience: a hiring manager or business owner.
This is why the number one marketing research investment that successful businesses spend is on market research. They spend literally billions of dollars to define and understand their audience.
Or take the skills, talents and aptitudes factor. Many counselors recommend career aptitude and personality tests. If this is all you do, it can be very misleading.
The reason it can be misleading? If you take a career aptitude test, personality test or other psychometric test, you are only gaining one of four factors. Very limiting.
Worse, a personality test may “pigeonhole” you into a narrow understanding of yourself, and you may end up putting yourself into a limited “box.”
Applying all of the four factors insures you won’t find yourself in a box, rather they insure you think “outside the box” to discover your most powerful market value. They are the blueprint to discover how to find the right job or business for you.
