How would you cur­rently rate your ca­reer on a scale of one to ten, where ten means that ev­ery­thing is go­ing per­fectly and one means that you are des­per­ately un­happy? Once we start to think about our ca­reer, there are many po­ten­tial ques­tions to be an­swered.

What do I re­ally want to do? How can I make progress and in­crease my in­come? Should I be work­ing more — or per­haps less? Should I take a break for a while? Should I be do­ing some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent? And so on.

In this spe­cial is­sue of Busi­ness Spot­light, we de­vote many of our reg­u­lar sec­tions to these sorts of ca­reer ques­tions. In our Busi­ness Skills sec­tion, Bob Dig­nen pro­vides tips for your self-de­vel­op­ment. In our In­ter­cul­tural sec­tion, Robert Gib­son gives ad­vice on work­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally. In our Easy English sec­tion, Mike Ho­gan shows you how to ne­go­ti­ate a pay in­crease. And in our main fea­ture (pp. 12–24), Lois Hoyal looks at de­ci­sions you could take now in or­der to boost your ca­reer — in­clud­ing get­ting an ex­tra qual­i­fi­ca­tion, work­ing abroad, learn­ing a new lan­guage or start­ing your own busi­ness. There’s much more, too. We look at the lan­guage of pay and ben­e­fits, dis­cuss jobs of the fu­ture and pro­vide tips on how to be­have at your of­fice Christ­mas party in a way that doesn’t ruin your ca­reer. We hope you en­joy this spe­cial is­sue and look for­ward to your feed­back! PS You will find three free au­dio tracks re­lat­ing to this is­sue by go­ing to busi­ness-spot­­er­probe. Look out for cir­cles like this one in the mag­a­zine.

Is your ca­reer mak­ing you happy — or is it leav­ing you un­ful­filled? Our es­sen­tial ca­reer guide can help you
