Manage Up the Ladder
How best to make the transition from frontline staff to management. As young professionals (Millennials) are now making their mark on Middle and Executive Management positions, this is a question many are looking at while strategizing their next move. As the next steps occur in a career, strong consideration and emphasis needs to be put in goal and vision setting, documentation, social media, certifications, professional developing and networking. Strategic positioning along with seeking opportunities play an important role as a career develops.
