Making Professional Growth and Development a Personal Responsibility (Part 2)

PrideStaff Las Vegas

Last month, we determined you’re tired of showing up to an office just to earn a paycheck. You’ve spent your career working to live, but now you’re ready to find a job where you can live to work. 

Employment agencies in Las Vegas can help you find a job that checks all your boxes and actually makes you excited to go to work. Having a recruiter on your side is an invaluable asset, because they’ll guide your path to success. 

In July, we discussed how to find purpose in your career. In part two of this series, we’ll cover professional growth. Here’s some advice to help you make learning a priority. 

Three Ways to Achieve Professional Growth 

Take on a New Challenge 

Discover skills you didn’t know you had by branching out a bit. Ask your boss if you can take on a project that falls outside the line of your standard duties or start a passion project in your free time. This will allow you to expand your horizons while boosting your resume. Trying out a new avenue before leaving your current job, means you can figure out where you’re headed next, while continuing to collect a paycheck. 

Get Involved 

Surround yourself with like-minded people by attending networking events for professionals in your field or one you’re interested in learning more about. You might even consider joining a professional association, as they offer seminars, conferences and training sessions to members. Putting yourself out there and making new connections will open the doors to many new experiences you won’t get sitting at home on your couch. 

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone 

When you go to work each day, you know exactly what you’re supposed to do. You’ve mastered all your responsibilities  and you’re incredibly bored.  

Shake things up by venturing into the unknown. Try something that terrifies you, because overcoming your fears is an amazing way to learn and grow. For example, if you’re terrified of public speaking, join Toastmasters. This will make you feel empowered, and you might actually take a new interest away from the experience.
