Growth - some considerations to assist with your decisions
Because of the constantly changing world of
the wireless market, we realize that not all career choices
last forever. Companies and their employees both realize that
at some point in their relationship, situations may arise
where a separation is needed for the advancement of both.
There are many reasons for such a change:
career advancement and - technology / management / lifestyle
- changes are but a few of the reasons most often expressed
during exit interviews.
Whatever is driving you to look for a career
change, we offer some professional considerations to help
you maintain your focus and relationships as you move forward
with your decision.
- Be sure you have explored all career opportunities
within your present company. Many times, a search for a
career change begins just when internal changes and openings
are occurring within your own firm. If you are a valued
employee, most firms will work with you to find responsibilities
within the company that will keep you there.
- Be sure you have discussed your career
opportunities with your significant other. This person will
be involved in the decision throughout the process, especially
if a geographical relocation is required and health benefits
change. It's better to get agreement up-front than to find
out when you are ready to take a new position that you don't
have agreement about the change.
- Be sure about what you want -- and what
you don't want -- in your next position. Consider the type
of responsibility, size of company, even geographical location
of preference. You are going to be asked about your reasons
someplace during your interview process, might as well begin
now preparing answers.
- Be flexible. Once you determine to begin
seeking new employment, you may be exposed to opportunities
that don't quite fit your exact desires, but may be challenging
positions. The only way to really find out if a particular
career opportunity is right for you is to explore it first
