Developing Career Intelligence

Developing your career intelligence will give you the capability to shape your future. Itís about acquiring a broader vision of yourself in the world, one that expresses who you really are and what you want to accomplish in your lifetime.

Part of your job search checklist should be to learn everything you can about your profession or the industry you want to pursue.†

  • Who are the target employers and their competitors?
  • What is happening in your job industry? What are the market trends?
  • What is the long-term outlook?
  • Which companies are hiring, expanding or downsizing?

Knowing what's happening in your target industry will also help you make more intelligent search and career decisions. Learn how a certified career coach can help too.
