Career builder tools & attitudes

As a career builder is a long-term player, some of the tools he or she can benefit from are in fact attitudes rather than specific actions.

• IT. Whatever your industry and profession, have an Information Age input. If you are, say, an archaeologist, be able to design a sophisticated archaeology website, or to communicate with other archaeologists in other languages in order to read and publish in those languages as well. Or create and maintain a complex database on archaeology that will be a plus to your employer, or gather a useful network of people in a professional archaeology blog... Information and communication are the key to the future. Exceed the ordinary IT expectations for your job and you will certainly progress, no matter what your industry is. IT career builder.

• Change-friendliness. Be ready for change. Accept it and learn to like it. No matter how young or old you are, inertia is one of the temptations we must constantly (and efficiently) avoid if we want to keep pace with modernity. Change means small technological improvements in your ordinary work, and also identifying the big, underlying trends in your whole industry’s evolution. Be always the cutting edge information guy or gal in your group, the one others refer to when it comes to the latest tool or theory or system... Be the one who teaches them all to adapt (they will normally be grateful an remain morally indebted).

• Originality. Without exaggerating, you can be the one who provides an original focus on the problems, the one who sits back and considers the whole matter from a more global perspective, perhaps unlearning and reconsidering theories, or rethinking techniques that were considered to be “the only one”.

• Higher focus. All other people focus on their own work and how to do it OK. Well, be the one who sees further and considers not only his or her own activity but the whole department or company. Show your employer that you have a natural talent to put yourself in his place and solve him problems from a more global perspective than the one expected from someone in your specific position.

• Loyalty. Show it upwards but, more importantly, also towards your equals and the people reporting to you. Most humans are loyalty-reflecting and if they perceive a positive attitude from you, an attitude that defends them, they will give you the same, even unconsciously.

• Market awareness. You are a piece of a market-oriented organization, so, no matter what your job is, you need to consider the market as much as the marketing manager in your company. In fact, market awareness is at the core of career building because, remember, your ultimate boss is not your boss or the company’s general manager: it’s the customer. Make it always obvious that you are market aware, and this will also help your reputation. More on this.
