  • Knowledge and experience are important, but hiring managers should also look for, define, and zero in on other critical attributes, such as communication, negotiation, and team-building, in a candidate.
  • A career plan typically begins by asking yourself what you want in a job and what you want in life. It’s about thinking ahead, not having perfect answers.
  • Your career plan isn’t etched in stone; expect to make improvements as you implement it.
  • Assess your progress in your career plan at least once a year.
  • Any time a new job or role change is on the table, take a moment to assess whether this new opportunity will help you towards the goals laid out in your career plan.
