In a couple of articles earlier, I started working this series on Career Management and a simple formula for staying on top of your game. The formula is a good framework for career management activities. The last article in this series looked a the job skills part of the equation; this time we’ll take a look at the performance part of the equation.
There are two different perspectives on performance as it relates to opportunities. One perspective is opportunities within your current company. The other perspective is opportunities outside of your current company.
Performance inside your company.
There is often opportunities to work in different positions (or promotions) within your current company. Performance from this perspective needs to be focused on a few things:
Performance external to your company.
This performance has a completely different flavor to that of inside the company. External hiring managers care mostly about what you accomplished in your previous position. Accomplishment is what counts when looking at other opportunities outside of your current company.
Of course, you need to be working both at the same time. But performance means different things to different audiences. Make sure your performance can satisfy any audience needed.
