The step­ping-stone Job

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - You, You, You -

Of­ten you’ll have made con­tacts in your Good- On-pa­per job that lead to the Step­ping-stone Job— usu­ally the role you’ll have be­fore your dream job. You like it, you get to use your skills, and you feel great about your con­tri­bu­tion, but there’s no room to grow. The only place to go is out the door (with great ref­er­ences) to some­where where you can con­tinue to thrive. The other up­side? “You could meet a men­tor who will help you through your en­tire car­reer,” says Wood­ward. “Iden­tify peo­ple who cur­rently hold your dream role and learn about them. What skills are vi­tal? What train­ing, cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, or ex­pe­ri­ence is key? Then as­sess your­self to dis­cover where any gaps might be, ask ques­tions, and work on fill­ing those gaps.”
