Questioning your career in IT / tech? If you’re like many technical professionals, you may know you “should” make another career move in tech, but you’re just not sure where to go next.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT’S NEXT WITH YOUR TECHNICAL CAREER
But You Know It’s Time for a Change
The writing is on the wall, so to speak. You’ve either been in your current role for a bit longer than you intended, the corporate culture around you is shifting in a direction that you don’t seem to fit into, or you just feel the itch. Careers in IT and all the technical disciplines … they offer many opportunities, but it can be challenging to decide among them.
So you’re thinking maybe you should get your resume together…
Whether this is a CIO resume, CTO resume, Program Manager resume, Telecom Director resume, Manufacturing resume, etc… As soon as you start talking to technical resume writers or reading through the latest tech career trends, you keep hearing the same mantra: “Your resume should be focused, focused, focused. The more focused, the more effective it will be.”
And then you start to panic (or at least twitch or something!). You might even think, “Oh no, do I really want to push myself into such a corner? What if I want to pursue two options? How come I don’t really know what’s next?”
Whatever the situation may be. The good news is that you’re not alone…

What Happens Next Is What Matters
For 95%, the answer is often “nothing”. Afraid to make a bad decision, they often end up not making any decision (which leads to stagnation). Or they hang on to “soul-searching” and “coaching.”
While this sounds like a lot of “activity,” more often than not, it rarely leads to “accomplishment” (so we’re back to “nothing”).
