When accepting meaningful employment, many employees jump into their positions head first, giving the job everything they have to offer and then some. This is great and exactly as things should be if you truly love what you do.
What shouldn’t be, however, is a working environment where you’re constantly powering into the job without being replenished in return. In order for any successful relationship to work, professional or otherwise, there must be a flow of give and take.
As you continue to invest in your job, be sure to stop and ask yourself exactly what it is your job is doing to invest in you.
What type of investment should your employer be making in your future?
The first step would be taking an active interest in your professional development. Besides, the more you know the more you bring to the table in your work.
How can your job invest in your professional development?
Your first stop should be the 12th Annual Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit. Each year BE hosts one of the most impactful summits for over 900 of the most powerful women executives, decision-makers, career climbers, and influencers around the world who are looking to connect while taking their careers to the ultimate level.
Your employer may sponsor your attendance at the 2017 Women of Power Summit, March 9–March 12, at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa in Phoenix, where you will enhance your leadership skills, network with industry leaders, learn new strategies for staying ahead of corporate trends, leverage business opportunities, embrace the secret power of sisterhood, and simply find yourself in the right place and at the right time. Your employer should want this for you as much as you’d want it for yourself.
