Hope I’m putting this is in the right place. I’m going to be building a bit of a super thread to gather and consolidate data, thoughts, feedback etc to help bring into focus my career path direction. I’m hoping to increase success probability by asking for feedback and focusing on strengths, weaknesses, motivations, competency requirements of my targeted roles, goals and capability gaps. -phew-
It’s all starting to come into focus now.
