Wherever you are in your career, we’re big believers in setting the bar high - it’s about finding that job, not just any job. To some, it looks like an opportunity to be challenged, whilst others might see it as a better work-life balance. The bottom line is: that job is different for everyone.
So, how do you figure out what that job means to you and, perhaps more importantly, how can you land it? Put simply, we think a healthy dose of self-reflection, paired with a bias for action, is the best way to set yourself up for success.
To support you on your journey, we’ve put together a step by step guide to navigate your next career move, complete with the resources you need to build confidence in answering the sometimes daunting “What’s next?” question.

Self-reflection is the process of taking a step back
Checking in with yourself regularly and asking questions like “What matters most to my career?” helps you get perspective on where you’re headed, whether you’re happy with the direction, and empowers you to change course if you want to.
Incorporating regular self-reflection into your routine will help you build the confidence to make smart decisions about your career and move you away from a mindset of only needing to take these moments of self-reflection when it comes to actively looking for a job. Our worksheet will guide you through questions that will help you reflect on your goals, values and aspirations.
A bias for action will help turn your reflections into reality
Once you’ve taken the time to dig deep into the areas that matter most to your career growth, you’ll need the drive to bring them to life. And that’s where a bias for action is needed. Put simply, it’s the choice to act proactively and a commitment to take the steps that will bring you closer to your goals.
To help you put the wheels in motion for getting you closer to landing that job, our worksheet includes an action plan that you can revisit whenever you're ready to make some changes in your career.
Without taking the time to really think about what you want from your job or career, you risk moving onto a job that's not right for you. And with no motivation or bias for action, you’re more likely to stay in your current role, even if you’re unhappy.
We hope this guide will help you feel more comfortable answering your big career questions, and, eventually, lead you to find that job - whatever that means for you.
