MUSC Steps in Your Career Development Is a Lifelong and Ongoing Process Discussion
Career development is a lifelong and ongoing process. The Steps in your career development began with you, your style, and skill areas, what your interests are, and how to go about starting a career that you are passionate about. In this Critical Thinking assignment, you will write a report after you explore and address the following items:
Professional Organizations: You will identify some professional organizations, related to the disaster recovery and business continuity field, and analyze them for alignment with your interests.
Conferences: Search for upcoming global conferences that are related to the disaster recovery and business continuity fields, and compile a list of conference names, locations, date(s), and link to their sites.
Interview Questions: Compile a list of job interview questions that may be asked of interviewees who are applying for disaster recovery and business continuity jobs.
Compile Short Phrases: Search LinkedIn for individuals with careers in disaster recovery and business continuity fields. Then, compile some short phrases from their profiles that are field specific.
Mentor/coach: Reach out to those you have found during your LinkedIn search. Request to connect to these individuals and consider asking for mentorship.
Employers Seeking Skills: Using online job listings sites, learn what kinds of jobs are out there for someone with your career interests and identify skills employers seek.
Compile Job Requirements: Compile a list of some of the job requirements associated with your selected role and add these requirements in an Excel table called “Roadmap Table.”
Roadmap Excel Table:
Rows: Are the job requirements employers want
“Have/Not Have”, if your resume has any of the requirements
“How to Achieve”, list what to do to address the requirements so you could have them on your resume
“Conferences” in the disaster recovery and business continuity
“Date”, month and year, the time frame to meet the job requirements goals
“Resources”, Establish the resources that will be needed to reach the goals
Prioritize to Build Career Roadmap: Prioritize the items on the Excel table based on the “How to Achieve” column in the order of your preference, fastest way to achieve these items, easiest way to achieve these items, and how you can achieve the necessary aspects in a cost-effective manner. This activity will provide you with a roadmap to your career in the Disaster Recovery field.
Conferences: List the conferences that are of interest to you, specifically in terms of networking opportunities, attendance, and/or those at which you are interested in presenting.
Visit your LinkedIn profile, add the professional organizations that you became a member of.
Put those short phrases, keywords, and skillsets you have in your profile.
Revisiting Career Roadmap Table: If you are presented with a series of crossroads, you must determine if you want to make changes in your roadmap and set different goals or stay on the same path. You may find information that you had not uncovered before. If you have noticed a new path/new information of interest, please consider revisiting your roadmap table and updating your choices, if necessary.
For this assignment, you are required to complete a paper. Your paper should be 3-5 pages in length, not including the Career Roadmap, and should conform to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.).
