At Uma Chingunde’s suggestion,
the learning circle I’m part of is doing a short detour
on career trajectory, and I’ve written up a short template
to use. This is similar to a career narrative, but with more focus on self-diagnosis than
something presentable to others.
There’s no “perfect template” for this kind of thing, but after giving it a test run, I
personally found it useful. If folks have other templates they’ve found more useful,
please send them my way and I’ll collect them here as well!
Look through the sections. If there are any sections that don’t resonate with you at all
(as opposed to just feeling hard to fill in), then remove or edit them.
It’s just a random template, not something sacrosanct
Fill in the sections. Feel free to jump around to answer the parts that you have the most energy for
Revisit a few days later: anything you want to change after sleeping on it?
If possible, find peers or friends to share and discuss each others checkups together
