Med-Certification, a medical coding specialist company, brings new life to career and life planning. Great careers and great lives usually do not happen by accident. The average person spends 40 hours a week at their given career. That is over 2,080 hours per year devoted to work. When you stop to consider how much time is invested it is easy to understand why career planning is imperative.

Ask yourself, is it time to expand your career knowledge base?  Does your job require certification, medical billing certification, or other certification now or will it be needed in the future? helps answer those kinds of questions and explore ideas.

There are several major steps to effective career planning which include the following:

  • Self-assessment
    Accurate self assessment is essential to assist a person to determine  current skills, values, personal interests, learning needs, self-employment potential, and knowing what to look for in a career path.  Asking yourself questions like what is most important to me in life? Some may answer this question that money is the most important, and others may answer that having a lot of free time to spend in travel is most important. There are no wrong answers.
  • Research
    Doing research to ascertain what types of work are available, what types of jobs interest you, and what are the current trends in that career field is an important next step in effective career planning.  Researching work environments, medical coding certification, income potential, and what type of advancement potential a career might have are also important research criteria to consider.
  • Decision making
    Decision-making entails actually preparing a career action plan. This is where you take time to really consider what you want to accomplish both short-term and long-term.  Things to consider would be health, exercise, community involvement, volunteerism, goals for education and/or career advancement.
  • Networks and contacts
    Networks and contacts are all about creating a really good resume, practicing interviewing skills, and locating potential employers.
  • Life-work planning
    Life-work planning is learning to take time to assess your career and life and making adjustments if needed. It is also about making future goals, deciding on further education, and planning for the future.
