Recruitment is synonymous with career progression. Apparently.
You may have discovered this sometimes isn’t the case.
And you can, in fact, reach the end of the road with a company without completing your meritocratic ascent.
Because the correct structures haven’t been put in place.
In theory, the sky’s the limit.
In practice, microenvironment factors are clouding the way and they won’t budge.
Which is a major bummer.
Because career progression gives you a sense of purpose.
Having something to aim for feeds your flair for work and life. It reduces stress and improves confidence.
When you feel supported in your work place you’re more likely to be engaged and productive.
Which is the least you deserve.
A job is a transaction. You’re offering your time and a financial tribute to your employer.
In recruitment, that tribute could be in the hundred of thousands per year.
So if you’re working with a company that isn’t investing in you or your progression, you’re wasting precious resources.
And it’s up to you to take your offering elsewhere.
Take control of your career.
