How You Can Best Impact the Future of Your Career Today

Careers always go in unexpected directions. Whether you know it or not, you’re currently preparing for critical areas for all of your future roles – including skilling and #networking.

Often, we evaluate our #career: where are we, how can we enhance our skills and experience, and what’s the next step?

Microsoft#sales leader Carlos Sousa joins Carson V. Heady for a special discussion.

While our employers and roles may change, the key learnings, experiences and skills we accumulate can make our value continuously increase.

What can you do today to do the job you want to have? A stretch role? Shadow those who are doing roles of interest?

Invest in training, books and relationships that enhance skills. Effectively #network with others where value and perspective can be exchanged. Say yes to opportunities.

You can infuse the job you want into what you do today. Carve out your unique niche which can not only transform your role but create a path to more potential opportunities.

Be open to where the journey will take you. Double down on your unique strengths and relationships. Find people that care about your unique skills. Never stop learning or connecting meaningfully!
