Repurposing your career

The folks at posted an article with what I think are some solid suggestions for anyone in the workforce, not just the recent grads to whom the article is targeted.  I’ll list their suggestions below, but click over to the article for the full discussion.

1. Identify your Value Proposition.
2. Score your Adaptability Quotient.
3. Zero in on Innovation.
4. Re-cultivate your Network.
5. Bring a new Leadership Mindset to your new job.

I would say that 90+ percent of the students I work with are unable to identify their “value proposition.” Even if one doesn’t use that phrase to describe the concept, students typically haven’t undertaken the introspection needed to do so or understood how to to evaluate their strengths, interests and values in order to think about their career in these terms.
