My friend Bill Savage, a Senior Lecturer & Academic Advisor at Northwestern University, sent me a great article from Harvard Business Review. The author, Priscilla Claman, argues that career ladders are a myth. More importantly, she demonstrates how this notion has led many people down a false path. She recommends that we prepare for lateral moves as well as promotions. The key to career success is developing skills that will let you “grow your job.” Claman’s advice is excellent for workers at any stage of their career. Take control and build the skills that will let you move wherever opportunity takes you.
