We hear so much these days about female empowerment and equal opportunities, but how many of you struggle to know where to start when it comes to advancing your career towards your goals? You might want to sit in one of those fancy office executive chairs one day, but you’re not sure where to begin.
This is something which many women face, but it’s actually easier than you might think. Check out this video, which explains three calculated risks you can take, to help get you where you want to be.
What do you think about the risks mentioned in this video? We’re talking about things like:
• Being willing to move to find opportunities
• Look for unproven opportunities, they allow you to shine
• Volunteer for the projects nobody else wants, e.g. working on a large office furniture design project that everyone else thinks is too challenging
Of course, we should not suggest that it is harder for a woman to seek the recognition she deserves than a man; thanks to recent news stories and a drive for everything to be equal, we shouldn’t have to think about these issues for very much longer at all. Of course, the sooner you can find yourself sitting in that seriously stylish office executive chair the better!
