Next Networking to Energize Your Career-4 Next

Regular participation in seminars, workshops and monthly association meetings is a great way to keep abreast of trends that affect your industry and, ultimately, your career. It can also help you build your network. Now you might be thinking: Isn't that my employer's responsibility? Or perhaps you are worried about taking the time off.

In an ideal world, your company would pay for your training, and of course your time is valuable. However, you are doing this for you. You are investing in your career. The fact that your employer benefits from your increased knowledge may be the basis for the next promotion or the reason why a rival organization offers you a better opportunity.

Do you bounce out of bed on Monday morning? Are you regularly presented with opportunities that challenge you to think and to grow? Does your salary equal your worth?

If you answered no to any of these questions, you could be at risk for career fatigue, a condition that weakens self-confidence and prevents advancement to new and exciting opportunities. In order to recover from its immobilizing effects, you will have to give your career as much attention as you give to your business projects. Once you accept accountability for your success or failure in the workplace, opportunities will appear that invigorate and inspire you. The following steps from TheLadders will help you grow and thrive in your professional life.
