You may ask yourself as you look forward to the year ahead, is it time to look for my next step? Considering your next steps in your career is about a lot more that a fishing expedition to see what you might catch by throwing out your CV. While it is tempting to just shoot out a copy of your CV when you run into an opportunity, sending out a CV without the preparation may not get the results you desire, and in some cases, may jeopardize future opportunities because it does not clearly represent who you are and what you are seeking.
While there are no absolute rules for when you should start seeking your next role, there are some fundamentals that any executive needs to consider when they do decide to explore new opportunities.
Investing in yourself to do it right the first time is well worth the returns of finding the right fit for your next role and potential future organization.
