At times it can be frustrating for talented IT professionals such as yourself to not get a chance to showcase their skills before an interviewer simply because they lack an exact fit against a job description. If you feel that you are in a rut with your career, there is a way to get out of it, but it may require the help of a professional to get there.
At MyTechlogy we are committed to helping IT professionals across the world find meaningful career advice from IT experts and professional career coaches. A good IT career coaching service could be vital to your success in bringing your career back on to a growth path, in switching jobs/careers, or even in just expanding your horizons.
You may find plenty of career advice out there on the web. But often such advice is only helps you progress to a limited extent beyond which you have more specific requirements that you’re not sure how to address. And that’s where career coaching can really help you. A career coach can act as your compass, helping you identify crucial blind spots that affect your career growth, and guiding you towards achieving your career goals.
Many IT professionals we’ve met actually already knew the solutions to their career challenges, but ultimately didn’t implement them because they didn’t give them the right priority and time. The best part about having a career coach and attending coaching sessions is that it helps you hold yourself accountable to the career-related tasks that you’ve been procrastinating on again and again.
Experimenting with your career without proper guidance may put your future career prospects at risk. Unlike your friends or colleagues, a career coach has no prior knowledge of you, and is therefore able to objectively analyze your career challenges from multiple viewpoints before recommending ideas that are optimized for your career progress. That means that you will get your ideas evaluated, and you’ll get real-time feedback and guidance from your coach about how to implement them and keep moving forward.
