Career goals are the foundation for your engineering career development. Regardless of your age or experience level, it is imperative that you have clear career goals. Career goals are an absolute must because they act as a destination for your career. Think of this analogy: you get into your car to drive somewhere that you have never been before; what piece of information do you need to get there? Yes ? an address! A goal is an address for your career path. Without this address, every time you approach an intersection (or decision in your career) you?ll never be sure which way to turn.
During this tutorial, you will be taken through a simple goal setting process not only to set your goals but also to get to the true meaning of why certain goals are important to you. You?ll see that once you have set goals that you are truly aligned with, everything in your engineering career and life will seem more purposeful.
