After completing your career goal using the process below, you will attach it to your first post by Day 3. Many individuals may not know how to develop a career goal; follow the steps below to you determine where to start. There are a few steps that can be ful in determining your career goal, which include conducting a self-assessment, exploring industries and careers, and determining factors that are non-negotiable (e.g., geographic location, salary requirements, health care benefits, etc.). The final step of goal setting is writing the first draft of your goal. Explore job industries by researching the type of careers that use your interests and skillset. O*Net OnLine (Links to an external site.), the Occupational Outlook Handbook (Links to an external site.), and Bureau of Labor Statistics (Links to an external site.) are great web resources for career exploration, job analysis, and education requirements. While deciding on a goal, consider your current lifestyle and where you would like to be in the future. Some ful questions to consider are listed below. Although we may not speak them aloud, we each have things we are not willing to compromise on. During this step, write out your must-haves for your future career. To get you started, think about the minimum salary you need to have, where you want to live, and desired work hours. 1. 1. 2. 2. 3. 3. 4. 4. 5. 5. Now that you have conducted a self-assessment, explored industries and occupations, and written down your non-negotiable items, what are your future career goals? Be as specific as possible. I would like to become a project manager within a large organization (5000+ employees) utilizing my organizational skills, education in organization development, my ability to plan strategically, and my detail-oriented nature. Since I have a family, I must have a salary of $50,000 or more, work within 25 miles of Houston, Texas, and work a 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. traditional work schedule. Attach your paper as part of your first discussion post.
