I gave a presentation to a few hundred Return Path employees in January at an all-hands conference we did called “How to Manager Your Career.”
The presentation has three sections — The Three Phases of a Career, How to Get Promoted, and How to Wow Your Manager.
While it’s not as good without the voiceover and interactivity, I thought I’d post it here…see the presentation on Slideshare.
As I said to my audience, if there’s one thing to take away from the topic, it’s this:
Managing your career is up to one, and only one person – you.
It doesn’t matter how great a corporate culture you have, or how supportive your manager is. You’re the only person who cares 100% of the time about your career, and you’re the only person with a longitudinal view of what you love, what you’re great at, where you’ve been, and where you want to go.
