We all know that the days of a “Graduation-to-Retirement” career at one or two companies are long over. If you are a recent college graduate, you can expect to have over a dozen different jobs during your career. If you are currently in a management or professional occupation, you can expect to be in that position for just over 5 years according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For younger workers, however, the number is just over 3 years!
With companies continuing to “flatten” their organizations, competition for middle and upper management positions is becoming greater as the number of such jobs decreases. The result is that, to succeed in your career, you need the extra boost having your own career coach can give you in managing your own career path!
