The career portfolio

Whereas a career path tends to be a singular pursuit (climb the ladder in one direction and focus on what is straight ahead), a career portfolio is a never-ending source of discovery and fulfillment. It represents your vast and diverse professional journey, including the various twists and turns, whether made by choice or by circumstance.

Especially for those just starting their careers, it’s important to know that you’re not going to have everything “figured out.” The ability to navigate ambiguity and “not knowing” are in fact among the most valuable skills.

Try practicing these three things:

  • Don’t blame circumstances for your mistakes. Instead, use them as an opportunity to learn about yourself.
  • When faced with an unfamiliar situation, don’t run or hide. Try to tackle it to the best of your abilities.
  • Don’t be hesitant about asking for help. No one comes with all the expertise, so ask for help when you need it. The best way through an unknown situation is going through it, rather than avoiding it or feeling let down by it.
