3 Ways To Advance Your Career

Posted by on June 17, 2021 in Careers, Education with 0 Comments

There are times in your life when you know you are ready for more in your professional career. That more might come in the form of obtaining a degree in higher education, honing your second language skills, and the list goes on. In today’s world, there are a myriad of opportunities to improve your business acumen and marketability.

Further Your Education

Once you have been in your career field for a while, you will undoubtedly realize that it is time to reach for more. Pursuing another degree that enhances or complements your current one will serve you well. Adding a master's makes you more marketable, and shows that you are ready for advancement in rank and responsibility. It opens up doors for other career opportunities as well as an increase in earning potential. Consider a career field such as an online Masters in Health Administration.

Earning an online MHA is convenient and can work seamlessly into your day-to-day routine. Going to school wherever you have access to a reliable wifi connection and a laptop is considerably more advantageous than carving out time to go to a brick-and-mortar campus. Online degrees are easier to work around your current career schedule. This format makes family obligations less complicated. Check in with your employer’s Human Resources department to see if they offer an education incentive as part of their hiring package.

Invest In A New Language

Knowing two languages with fluency increases your marketability for new roles – both in your current company and for future prospects. Having the ability to read, write, and converse with native or near-native proficiency allows you to work abroad or assist clients in other countries.

Learning a second language or even a third is proven to increase your mental acuity. People who study a language other than the one they first learned tend to receive exposure to more cultures and opportunities for change in work and advancement.

Seek Out A Mentor

Regardless of whether you are just starting on your career path or are a seasoned professional, finding a mentor can prove invaluable to your success. Having someone who has experience in the same career field as you and can offer expertise gleaned from their years of business achievements and missteps can help you avoid those same pitfalls. They can guide and help steer you towards growth and profitability.

A mentor can provide their services as a sounding board for business ideas and plans. They are someone that can make introductions into their circle of like-minded business professionals. Making occupational connections is vital to business continuity. When you need future services other than those your company provides, you will know who to reach out to.

No matter where you are on your path to business success, strive to do more and learn more. Achieving great things is an opportunity that you can attain through planning and some work on your part. You do not have to go it alone, however. Engage with like-minded individuals who will mentor you. Continue your education to open up a world of possibilities. Throughout your journey, remember to take care of yourself to take care of your future.
