This is especially true when it comes to your professional journey. With so much unexpected—and, many times, unwanted—change, it can be tempting to toss out the road map and simply go wherever the wind blows you.
I’d like to encourage you to fight that urge. There’s still something to be said for strategic career mapping. As an entrepreneur with more than 20 years under my belt, I believe thoughtful planning is fundamental in creating a fulfilling and successful career. And as it turns out, the 2017 “MRINetwork Millennial Hiring Trends Study” found that 53 percent of millennials want to map out their careers, too.
