10 Common Misconceptions About Career Management Ford MyersIf you thought you only needed top-quality career tools when you were out of work, you’ve been misinformed!

Let me share with you some other common misconceptions about career management from my decades of experience helping people just like you:

  1. The most qualified candidate gets the job offer
  2. As long as I have a job, I don’t have to work on my career
  3. My professional education stopped when I graduated from school
  4. Employers always offer the most generous compensation they can afford
  5. If I just do a good job, my position will be secure
  6. My resume is the only document I need to search for a job
  7. Recruiters will find me a job, so I don’t have to search for jobs myself
  8. Employers are responsible for managing my career path
  9. Networking is only for entrepreneurs and jobseekers, so I don’t need to network
  10. Most good opportunities are listed on job web sites, so they’re easy to identify 

You should always be prepared for a career transition, whether you’re currently looking for a new opportunity or not.

This is all part of managing your career in a responsible and intelligent manner.
