Career planning: can you build a career only with connections and money?

What is it – career planning?

“Give up! If you don’t have connections in this industry, you won’t succeed. The competition is brutal.”

“If you want a successful business of your own, you need a lot of money to invest in it. You won’t get anywhere if you start from scratch.”

“If your family isn’t rich, you won’t get far.”

How often have you heard such statements? Do you think they’re true?

These sentences are often said by the cowards, the unambitious, the unsuccessful. Have you heard a truly successful person spouting similar sentiments? Quite the opposite – successful people are proof that it isn’t true.

But your career isn’t a gift from someone. Everyone can work, not everyone can build a career. She is the result of focused work, tireless striving and ceaseless planning. 

Why planning?

Let’s be honest, success isn’t just going to show up out of thin air. If you want to achieve it, you’ll need to know where to turn to – to create an action plan. Career planning means:

  • deciding what you want to work
  • determining what skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your field
  • understanding how to acquire these skills and knowledge
  • having a vision for your future and goal-setting to the top
  • having confidence and trust in yourself and in the quality of your work

The way to the top isn’t always a result of multiple years of working to the bone. Careful planning and the right strategy are the perfect combination of factors, leading up to your success.

Now we know why, it’s time to understandhow to plan your career.

To find the right path for you, you need to clearly answerthreeimportant questions.

  1. What do you love doing?
  2. What are you the best at?

So far, so good! If you’ve answered these two questions, you’ve found your hobby. To turn it into a profession, you need something crucial:

     Who would pay for these skills of yours?

Now you know what you love doing and who needs you and your skills!

Are you motivated to succeed?

If all of this planning ignited your motivation for success, it means you’ve found your calling ! The one thing, which you’re not only good at, but motivates you and makes you happy. 

If you’re still unsure of yourself, maybe you need a little help. 

The career consultant is the person who can simplify this process and make it more exciting rather than scary. With his help you can create a genious action plan out of the scrambled ideas and take the first step towards the top. 

Success is for the brave ones, not for those born with a silver spoon in their mouths, not for the lucky ones, not for the lottery winners. If you still need support, Voca Academy offers individual consultations for career planning. 

We’re not saying that there aren’t people, who are successful because of their connections and money (the so-called nepo babies). A lot of people have an advantage. But that doesn’t mean they’ll win the race.
