Your career success bases itself around your ability to understand professional nuance. The factors separating you from your preferred position in life are very small. Here are three top tips to ensure your career success.
Localize Your Skill Set.
No one is looking for a generalist anymore. Focus your skill set on a specific industry, learning the software programs used in that industry and the lingo that will allow you to speak about nuances within the industry to experienced professionals. Make sure your resume reflects this localized skill set. Employers will appreciate that you took the time to find out what their company actually needed.
Get a Mentor Within the Industry.
The phrase “It is not what you know; it is who you know” is true of every industry including the medical industry. Insiders stay abreast of the latest technology and gain access to the top research and medical implementation facilities. You will never have access to this world unless take the time to find a mentor within the industry.
Provide Value at All Times.
No one cares if you are the most talented person in the room as long as you bring value to the room no matter what. Although increasing your skill set is certainly admirable, focus on what you can do in the present as well.
