COVID-19

Career

I just joined an aviation company but the learning opportunity is rather limited due to COVID-19. The slowdown is expected to last awhile. Should I start to look for a change in job?

Indeed the slowdown for the aviation industry may last for a while. Perhaps you can look at what made you join the industry in the first place. Was that part of a longer term plan? If you choose to stay because it is an industry you want to stay in, how can you still find opportunities to learn be it inside or outside of the company? If you choose to change, don't rush into it. Do compare the pros and cons as the current market situation is quite uncertain.

What is key to ensuring that I have a successful career? I'm not in a job I like now but is having a good job or doing a job that I like determinant in having a successful career?

Hello, I think I should answer that with a few questions. What is your definition of a successful career? If you don't like your job, can you still excel in it? Can you see yourself doing what you do in the long run or do you feel you will get burnt out eventually? What are the other things you do outside work that will help you achieve your version of success? I hope these questions will give some clarity in your thinking.

How do I pivot into a management position where my skillset does not matter and you just hire skilled people to do the work?

To do well in a management position, in fact you have to develop quite a number of skills relating to people and project management. I assume in your questions you are referring to technical skillset? Even for business owners that I coach, they usually have to develop their leadership and management skills, even though the implementation/executional work is mainly done by their staff, without the right skillset the team won't be able to thrive either. So I guess the short answer to that is, upskill yourself in the people leadership areas! :)

Individuals with great leadership are uncommon. Are there any platforms to find them? Or is there a way we can we connect with potential mentors?

Hello, What areas of your life would you like a mentor for? If it is related to your work, there are organisations like mentors hub (you can google it) where they gather mentors who are passionate about helping the younger PMEBTs. Otherwise, LinkedIn is a good platform too as you can go a bit more specific and request to connect. One good way is offering to shadow someone or to do internship as a mentee.

Don't you get tired or burned out from the never-ending upgrading cycle? Every year we have to keep upgrading. Isn't it so tiring?

Hi there, as I answered in the live session, firstly, in your quest for personal development, you can choose the areas that you have interest in. It will make it a lot more enjoyable and empowering. Whenever I feel this way, I usually ask myself, can I change what I am focusing on? I am quite deliberate in my personal growth. I focus on what eventual outcomes I want for myself, I pick goals that inspire me, and hence the learning journey to get there becomes a lot more enjoyable once you perceive it as opportunities that will bring you closer to what you want.

Some say that you will like/enjoy what you are good at. If I have some interest in what I'm doing now, but seem to be doing well and have promising career advancement path, should I stick with it?

What is your advice to people who already have been working in a specific industry but due to circumstances are stuck with no growth? Would switching industry "waste" the last few years of work?

Answered on 22 Apr 2020
I would work backwards from your life goals. If you were to continue in this current industry will it lead you to where you want to be in life? Is it the industry that is holding back your growth? Or company? If you start afresh will it make it more or less likely that you can reach your goals? I am asking you these questions because I have changed industry multiple times. If you can retain what you learn and you consciously picked up skills along the way, then it is definitely not a waste.

Do we need to progress up to a management role as we age?

Answered on 22 Apr 2020
Firstly, which path is more appealing (you both enjoy and can excel at) for you? Some people prefer to do more technical role and they grow to be technical experts in their field, getting more specialised. Some others do enjoy the position where they can manage and mentor the team, and they want to grow in the area of people management. Secondly, what are the opportunities available in your company? Is that the progression that is expected of you? You may want to communicate your work goals/aspirations with your superior too so that you know what are the options available.

Is it true that a bad resume is worse than a fresh graduate? Or in other words, being constantly underemployed will disadvantage me. How true is that statement?

Answered on 22 Apr 2020
Hi, while there are some elements of truth in that statement - some hiring managers may be questioning the reason of the underemployment, if you can deliver good explanations and showcase how you can add value based on your experiences and other efforts in upgrading yourself, you can significantly improve your chances. I do know for a fact that many hiring managers also look at a candidate's attitude and culture fit when they choose who to hire, not just skill sets.

I am 33 now and my dream is to start my own business. As I am a sole bread-winner of the family, is it worth taking the risk to start my business?

Answered on 22 Apr 2020
Hello there! If you do decide to start your own business, ensure that you've got a solid business plan and ensure it is not going to take too long to start being profitable. If possible, why not start it as a side hustle first? You will get an idea of how feasible it is or how long it will take for your business to take over your income. You may also want to do your income & expenses calculation to ensure you are not taking on more risk than necessary. Hope this helps! Feel free to ask me if you have more questions.
