Career advice: Know yourself!

by on
in Career Management,Workplace Communication

“My boss is driving me crazy. What can I do about it?”

“My co-worker got a promotion, even though I do a better job.”

“My career isn’t going in the direction I want it to. How can I change?”

The starting point for almost any question about your career, says career columnist Penelope Trunk, is: Know yourself better. “Self-knowledge is what helps you solve your problems,” she says.

You can answer almost any career question by applying a little introspection, rather than looking for solutions. Answers to the questions above might be:

“Consider what you can do differently so that your boss responds to you differently.”

“Understand that your co-worker may be more likable. Figure out ways to make yourself more likable.”

“Pinpoint your unique combination of skills and craft a better résumé.”
