Career ProgressionOut of college and off to find a job, some graduates think that they have it all planned out—only to find out that life outside of school is different. Once you start working, there are no set rules. The progress of your career will be in your hands. You will only be rewarded for the effort you put in.

If you want to move ahead in your career, there are a couple of things that you need to do.

Learn to accept change – It’s easy to get attached to the way you’ve been doing things. The uncertainty of change can make you uneasy. Instead of facing the unknown, you would rather do things the way you’re used to doing them because you know what the results will be.

The ability to change will have a major impact on how your career progresses. If you don’t open yourself up to the possibility of change, you will be left behind by those who are willing to adapt and try new things.

In order to make real progress, you need to constantly make an effort to identify areas where you can make changes in the way you do things.

Make a habit of learning – This may look like something that everyone would know, but the real problem is that many people don’t take action. The application of what you know to your career is what will help you to keep progressing in your career.

Once identifying the areas you can change becomes second nature to you, your next step would be to learn better ways to make that change.

By constantly learning, you can open doors that would not have been there otherwise. As you add new skills and knowledge to your repertoire, you are preparing yourself for the next stage in your career.

Realize your potential with the help of these two things. Don’t get stuck in your career—open yourself up to the opportunities.
