Now is the time to manage your career consciously and map out where you want to go in the future. Managing your career can become more challenging when you are caring for others. The added responsibilities can mean you only have time and energy to focus on short term deliverable tasks, and your personal and career goals go further down the list of priorities. This is understandable for the early days, but any longer than this and you might find yourself becoming frustrated that you are not doing your career justice.
This checklist can be a good reminder of the things to do to become ‘career fit’ once again.
