Tonight I would like to share a little bit tips that I got from MASC :)
As we knows most people find it difficult to identify their weak areas. So do I but I realized it is important to be able to do so because, in order to become better, you need to improve your weak areas. In fact, it is a key step in undertaking your career planning.
- Try to remember some of the comments you received from your peeps and teachers when you were in school.
- Make a list of words that describe you best.
This could give you some idea of your weak areas. Be brutally honest and realistic about yourself.
To understand the numerous opportunities and threats in
- your chosen fields.
- read newspaper.
- watch the news, business programmes on TV.
- surf the net.
- talk to your career counsellors.
I believe the answers that you get from doing the above should help you to draw up a road map with various possible paths that you can take in your career planning.
From here, you should have a fair idea of your road map and the possible paths that you can take in planning your career. Learn how to use your strengths to negate or overcome your weaknesses. Find out how you can take advantages of the opportunities available, while avoiding the threats that may exist in your chosen fields.
