If you've been following along in completing your career development guide, you should have a good idea of your personal story, roles you're interested in, and industries of interest. Now it's time to narrow this down. You're going to want to prioritize each choice. Based on your career profile, you'll want to look at the roles that most closely align with the skills and knowledge and qualifications that you want to use. Put a number 1 next to your top role and the next one as 2.
Keep doing this with all the roles, ranking them in order of alignment with your profile. Next, you'll prioritize industry based on your lifestyle choices and work culture. Rank the industries in order of alignment with your career profile, putting a 1 next to the closest match and so forth until you've ranked them all. So now that you've prioritized your choices, next we'll be using a tool called a Gap Analysis.
This will help you determine your next steps to achieving your top role in industry.
