A career goal is something that all employees need to have. Even more so if you are a new employee. Why does an employee need to set clear goals? How, and what are the examples? This paper tries to answer these questions.
Understanding Career Goals
Career goals are what you plan for the future at work. What are the things you want to achieve. Or it could be what career path you want to pursue. Usually this is asked during the interview process. HRD questions regarding “What are your future career goals?” is a routine question but is often a scourge for prospective employees.
In fact, this is normal because companies want to know whether you are the person they are looking for or not. Because if your goals are not clear, the company will doubt your motivation and enthusiasm for working later. Here are examples of career goals that you can adapt:
• Set clear targets: For example, in the first 1 year you will achieve sales of a certain number of units.
• Make a daily plan: You provide a work pattern to be done each day to reach a big goal at the end of the year.
• Make evaluations independently: You make an evaluation of your performance every month.
• Growing with the company: In the sense that there is mutually beneficial interaction between you and the company.
• Specific goals: For example “In this period I will get new clients from out of town”, “this month’s sales should increase by 3% compared to the previous month”.
