    How to Reverse Engineer Your Career

    How to Reverse Engineer Your Career

    To create the career you’ll love and reach career success faster, reverse engineer your career.
    If you’ve ever felt unsure about what you need to be successful in your career it’s probably because you don’t really know which path you want your career to follow, and you’re unclear of how far you want to take your career.
    Here are the six steps to develop a strategy for your future career success - listen to the full episode for details on how to implement these steps:
    1. Get clear on what you really want
    2. Conduct your research – find your dream job/s online
    3. Analyse the job descriptions
    4. Conduct a gap analysis
    5. Come up with a strategy to overcome the gaps
    6. Find a mentor or career coach


    Reverse engineering your career does not have to be difficult.  You certainly don’t need an engineering degree to reverse engineer your career!
    Take time to define your career aspirations, conduct research and analysis and be honest about where the gaps are.  To hasten your career progression in the direction you desire, overcome those gaps and you will be in a strong position to progress step-by-step in the right direction.

    LinkedIn Audio Events - New LinkedIn Feature

    LinkedIn Audio Events - New LinkedIn Feature

    LinkedIn Audio Events have arrived in Australia!
    Yes, it’s time to get excited about LINKEDIN AUDIO EVENTS. Yes, they are finally here in Australia after over 6 months of beta-testing in the US.
    Why should we be excited? LinkedIn Audio is like podcasting meets TALK-BACK RADIO.  You can join in the conversation LIVE, ask any questions or raise a topic you’d like to discuss.  ON THE SPOT.  

    Yes, I know there’s already Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces, but LinkedIn Audio Events are a little different.
    ** Set this reminder: I will be broadcasting my LinkedIn Audio Event Q&A ‘ASK ME ANYTHING’ about your career series regularly on the LAST FRIDAY of each month!  
    Make a note to join my first one on 29th July from 12-12.30pm SYDNEY/MELBOURNE time (that’s the evening on Thursday those of you in the US).  Details here - click ATTEND and you're in!
    On the 29th July I will be joined by Human Resources specialist, Trevor Weeding who will moderate the event and also provide an HR perspective to also answer any career related questions you may have.
    At this point in time LinkedIn does not allow recording of the live audio sessions so there will be no replay so be sure to go to my LinkedIn profile (just look for Jane Jackson Career Coach) or click the LinkedIn link in my show notes for episode 231, and click ATTEND.  
    When you register to attend you can add the event to your calendar. When you click ATTEND that will also ensure you get the notification on LinkedIn when I go live.   I hope you’ll join me!
    Last week I was joined by Twitter Spaces Guru, Keith Keller, and LinkedIn Audio Beta tester, Kevin D Turner to discuss LinkedIn Audio vs Clubhouse vs Twitter Spaces for your career. 
    LinkedIn Audio is a new feature that LinkedIn has been rolling out country by country and at last it’s in Australia!  Many people have been asking me how to find out if they have this new feature so let’s find out if you do before I explain the key benefits of the LinkedIn Audio platform.

    How to Ask For a Pay Rise

    How to Ask For a Pay Rise

    Few things are as nerve-racking as asking for a pay rise. Asking for more money can be complex, but doing the right research and preparation can make you feel more confident and better set for success.
    How you prepare for a salary discussion can include getting a sense of salaries in your industry, finding ways to demonstrate your performance, and checking in with the bigger picture – including what economic conditions are like.

    In episode 230 of Your Career Podcast I go over what you need to do to prepare well for that Salary Raise discussion and also provide a SCRIPT of what you can say during that discussion!

    If you need help to take control of your career, or want a mentor to guide you to grow in your career (or make a successful career change) then the CAREER SUCCESS PROGRAM is the perfect blend of online on-demand career programs, webinars, self-assessments, career templates and Group Coaching Calls so you'll never feel alone when making important career decisions.
