Can one really plan and prepare for one’s career? Obviously the answer is yes. One should prepare a career plan and become successful. Those who plan have better chances of success.

A job is not a career and this distinction must be kept in mind. Your job is not an end in itself. It is a means to an end, which is your career. Your career belongs to you. Your job belongs to your employer. Career is an integrated life long plan of earning and a job one may hold at a particular time.

Scientific approach is essential in career planning check your aptitude for army, navy and  air force. Then check what have I done for my career search ? Then identify and analyses your needs. What are the possible opportunities in life available to  and how can I cash them. What are the possible  alternatives available during my career plan ?

The most important and difficult factor before choosing a career is to find out the strength and weakness of oneself. Here one has to understand and analyize both the strength and weaknesses in one’s personality traits and environment. Self-assessment regularly motivates a  person to acquire some essential needed in job skills. This may be, adequate communication skill, stress, management techniques general ability of forecasting the work climate of future, meeting the intellectual level, aptitude and attitude requirement, must apt for an organization and profession which matches his strength. This is where one’s skill is tested.

Remember once you set your career, you set a time frame to achieve it. This would help in identifying you role and help you to decide short term and long-term goals and your commitments constantly to review them. This will also act as a reminder to you as to what you have accomplished and how you are progressing. This amounts to progress monitoring of life goals with the action plan.

The success in career will depend upon self-development and self-motivation. Develop basically skill in job, ability to get along with people, urge for self development, quest for excellence, sensible contingency plans, analytical ability, organizing ability capacity for hard and sustained work, leadership qualities, depth of knowledge, vision, imagination, proper decision making curiosity, intelligent, interest  in  happening around, candid, mentally flexible and positive nature.

The  earlier you set your clock on career planning the better you would grow. Leading unplanned career is like a game of football without goal, neither interesting to players nor to the viewers. Your chances of success in planned career are far greater than in an unplanned career.
