CAREER PLANNING

how_to_plan_your_career

Throughout my time in education I had lots of questions about which career path would be right for me. Questions such as: 

  • Which job makes me feel good about what I'm doing and also helps me with my financial goals?

  • How should I go about writing my CV and effectively demonstrating that I'd be a great person for the job?

  • What are the key skills and attitudes employers look for?

  • Now I've got the job, how should I approach my first two years for maximum learning, progression and enjoyment?

I share with you my experiences. The mistakes, the successes and the lessons learned. The aim is for you to come away better prepared for the job market and a successful career post education. 

Here's my rolling learnings document from my time woking at the global digital advertising agency - VaynerMedia. I still need to round off the last few months on the job within the document! For now, it should give you a decent idea of what to expect in terms of career planning and advice from The Exam Coach.
