Sul canale SQLPASS TV, continua la pubblicazione delle sessioni erogate al PASS Summit 2011. Questa settimana è stata pubblicata la sessione Building a Professional Development Plan tenuta da Andy Warren.
Ready to take the next step in your career? Ready to build a plan that will get you there? This session will show you a process for building a comprehensive professional development plan – a road map to get to where you want to go! This session is designed to help you build a professional development plan using the same techniques that are used for building business plans. We’ll talk about obtaining and managing resources, setting realistic goals, tracking progress, and what to do when you get off plan. We’re going to look at more than pure technical learning. We’ll discuss how and when to modify your plan to include networking, writing, social engagement, and managing and leadership skills – and talk about the most effective ways to do it. We’ll touch lightly on the value of a mentor and ways to find a good mentor. We will also discuss changing how you look at your career, adopting the mindset of the consultant even if you prefer to retain your status as an employee. It’s not an easy change, but it’s a powerful one, and that is an important component of a professional development plan. At the end of this session you should be ready to spend a day building a plan that will help you move your career forward to a goal that you’ve selected.
