If you have ever had the feeling of being stagnant or in a rut in your career, then you also know the necessity of doing some self-reflection on what you need to do to move your career forward!

Career stagnation is bad for you because it leads to career boredom, limits job options, and can ultimately put you out-of-a job when your area of specialty becomes obsolete.

 

So, here is the question: how can you avoid career boredom, stagnation or job loss due to your career becoming stagnant?

 

How To Avoid Job Loss By Specializing

One of the best ways to keep your job prospects bright and/or secure is to is to become a specialist in your industry! 

Becoming a specialist means keeping abreast of technological changes or the technical literature associated with your area of expertise.

If you specialize enough, you can earn higher wages, become an expert whose views are sought-after or get chosen for fulfilling cutting-edge projects.

Is a Lack of Specialization Stagnating / Hurting your Career?

If you sense that your employer has a hard time finding projects for you to work on or if you feel like you are too spread out, then it may be time for you to specialize!

 

So, here are a few career options / specializations in the IT Industry:

  1. Business Analysis
  2. Web Design
  3. Web Development
  4. 'Database Modeling
  5. Database Design
  6. Database Development

Hello..I'm an IT Professional with over 20 years of experience. For the most of my career, I have done primarily System Admin work, as well as some Networking and Storage Infrastructure solutions. I'm at the point of my career where I want to go into more Project Management/Business Analysis work. I have my MBA but I'm trying to figure out how to step back from the more "technical" aspect of the job and become more customer facing.
