Regardless of your current skills, education or experience, there are plenty of career advancement opportunities available for you right now. No matter how many career doors might seem closed at the moment, there are plenty more open opportunities ready and waiting for your unique blend of talent and personality. You just need to find them. And that involves some goals, plans and strategies to make it all happen.
So how do you actually apply this to your career growth and development? It's simpler than you might think. Take the time to understand exactly what you can offer an employer and then match yourself with employers who genuinely need you. You might not always get your dream job every time, but you won't get any job at all if your plan is too unrealistic or so hard to implement that you don't actually execute it.
Therefore your career growth plan must be something that you enjoy (or at least tolerate) doing so things get done. Even if your chance of getting "that" special job is a less than 100%, that number is still bigger than zero which is what happens if you don't make a proper effort. Your career growth plan is dependent on you taking action with a very clear sense of what needs to be done and how.
