If someone asked you to describe your vision of the most perfect place on earth, what would it look like? A mountaintop with a spectacular view? A tropical island with a warm breeze, soft sand and tall palm trees? Now suppose someone asked you to describe in similar detail your vision of the perfect career. How do you draw a picture of something you can't yet clearly see?
In developing a career vision, you are creating a work picture of where you want to go with your career, If you can visualize your ultimate goals, it will become easier to choose what your next job should be. Even if some portions of your vision are fuzzy, write down what pieces you do know. It’s like creating the scenes of a play. Each scene can be written independently to tell part of the story, and eventually all of the scenes add up to be complete production.
