Maximize Your Career And Job Opportunities In The Renewable Energy Market – Wind, Solar & Biofuels
By Chris Hillman, Executive Recruiter
Well-run companies around the globe continually strategize, implement and execute business plans. Their plans are fluid, written on paper, have specific goals and objectives, create direction and purpose, and are shared with others to inspire accountability.
Is your career as well planned? You expend roughly
80,000 hours of your life at work. Think about the impact both personally and professionally-a well-planned and managed renewable energy career could have. Imagine the possibilities of having
a career strategy with measurable milestones, action items, accountability partners and dreams in place.
The best place to start is to take an active inventory assessment of your current situation-and create a base line.
Then, decide where you want to be and finally create action steps as to how you will get there.
Where you are currently
How does your current career meet your goals?
Consider finances, location, entrepreneurial, autonomy,
Work-life balance, philanthropic, friendship, educational, self improvement, esteem, travel, retirement and family.
Where you want to be
What does your dream career look like? What job opportunities will fulfill for career aspirations? Consider company size, public or private, geographic location, how you are rewarded and/or recognized, title, responsibilities and support.
It’s no secret that the competition for talent in the renewable energy market (wind. Solar and biofuels) has become fierce. As an industry leader, how have you positioned your company and/or department as being a terrific place to work? How do you reduce employee turnover, increase morale and be the employer of choice in our industry?
I have been asked this very question by hundreds of client companies and thousands of candidates seeking the “best” employer.
In a competitive market, qualified and motivated people move faster and expect the most from their employer.
Life is a movie and you are the director
Unfortunately most people let life and their career happen to them. The reality is that we can be the director of or our own movie. Who we work for, where we work, why we work and what we do should be considered. Remember, intention is everything. The way you do anything in life is the way you do everything.
