Experienced managers know that traditional ways of hiring employees is no guarantee of workplace success. Resumes, interviews, LinkedIn profiles… these can all be practiced and re-worked into meaninglessness. These managers find new ways to assess someone’s fit and their priorities show why career design is so important.
Career design is building your work and life on the strong foundation of who you naturally are and what’s important to you. From there, you focus on jobs and organizations that are a good fit. Managers are also looking for fit. In the NYTimes article “How to Hire the Right Person”, managers are told new ways to figure this out. Someone who goes through the career design process can make it easy for managers to hire them.
Knowing who you are, what you want, and what’s your value gives you an edge in getting hired. That’s why career design is based on these aspects. And this also comes in a side benefit of happiness and life satisfaction. Hard to beat that!
