An alternative holistic career planning model proposed by Oregon State University (Career planning process – online, 2014) consists of the following interchangeable steps:
•Becoming self-aware-explore unique qualities – how do I fit with different career types?
•Becoming career-aware-exploring career possibilities – what do people do in different careers? Should I start my own business?
•Integrating awareness information-exploring challenges, making decisions & setting goals – does this mean following my heart or my head, or both?
•Marketing -preparing to obtain work – can I pull it all together to convince an employer I’m the right person for the job?
•Workplace Success-exploring methods for success – how can I start out on the right foot?
•Balanced lifestyle-review, reflecting, researching, and responding to personal, family/social, career, leisure, and community integration – Yikes!
My personal career plan consists of several stages. Prior to landing to my dream job – senior marketing executive of a global multinational company I have to gain valuable skills and experience that would help me to be successful in that job. These skills are interpersonal skills, communication skills, ability to conduct extensive complex researches, creativity and others. I can gain these skills working in different positions which would lead me to senior marketing executive position, where in each position I can master one or more of the skills required
Stage 1: Working as a sales person in a multi-level marketing company.
After completion of my studies the first job I will be doing is the position of a sales person in a multi-level marketing company such as Discovery Toys, Freelife, Herbalife, Neways or telecom Plus.
