Welcome
Welcome to the Career Planning 101 Checklist, your mini toolkit for success in life and in business. If you have already picked up your copy of The Career Planning Guide Toolbox, you have some idea of the direction you want to move in as a student or any other individual attempting to plot their career. There are many important phases as you know in the career planning process. This checklist will help you stay organized on your journey, to help you make the most of your career planning and to help ensure your success. You can apply this checklist no matter what stage you are in the career planning process. The first part of the checklist is designed for college students and even high school students interested in expanding their horizons. The second part of the checklist is for anyone interested in career planning, including the phases involving expansion and growth of your career. You can use this checklist whether you want a promotion at your current job or whether you want to invest in an entirely new career. When it comes to career planning, a world of opportunities awaits you. The more you prepare for your future, the better able you are to make the most of your skills, talents and abilities so you can benefit from them and enjoy your future. Now let’s take a look at the first checklist you should follow when plotting or mapping your future. The first checklist is simple and easy, yet incorporates many of the principles discussed in The Career Planning Guide Toolbox. Make sure you get out a pen and piece of paper so you can work along with the checklist.

College Career Planning Checklist
The best time to start planning your career is while you are still in school, whether high school or college. If in high school, if you start planning your career you can better decide what major to follow and what classes will lead you down the right career path. If in college career planning will prove essential to your ability to transform your education into skills you can use to profit from in the future. Here are the key steps in the college (or high school) career planning checklist:

During your first year of college or last year of high school, take some time to consider what your career goals are. As part of the career planning process, you should write down what your goals are related to your future career and your education.

Explore the various opportunities around you. You can do this during the early years of your education. Now is the time to collect as much information as you can about occupations, careers and your interests.

Inventory your skills, abilities, hobbies and interests. This can happen during any phase of your education, but works best when conducted early in your studies. Finding out what you are good at helps you decide whether the occupation you have an interest in would be a good fit for you or not. You may be surprised to find out what types of opportunities become available to you depending on your skill set.

Look for opportunities to gain experience in the field you want to work in. These opportunities may come in various forms, including through work study programs, through volunteer programs, by internships or even through corporations that allow job shadowing and mentoring. If you know someone that works in the field you aspire to, talk to them and ask them what you can do to enhance

your odds of excelling in the field. You should also ask them about the highs and lows of their career, so you know what to expect when you get into it. As a student or individual seeking to expand your career opportunities, it is important you realize that all occupations and fields have their highs and their lows. You shouldn’t look at any one job as a bowl of roses. The choice you make about a career may depend in part on how many lows you are willing to endure compared to career highs. For example, the career of your dreams may pay a dismal amount of money. If you find this is the case, do not leave heartbroken. Perhaps there are additional ways to earn added income so you can still follow your dreams but also keep up with the cost of living. Let’s say for example you would like to pursue education or writing. There are many grants available to students and professionals in these fields for the purpose of supporting projects and providing extra money when needed. Keep an open mind about what opportunities are available to you, and you won’t be disappointed in the results. Now that we know some of the basic career planning steps, let’s look at some steps that are important to follow if you have established yourself in a career and want to make a change, whether to promote or to transition into a new career.

Career Planning Checklist for Change
Change is an inevitable part of life. While you may think you found the perfect career right out of school, you may later find you want to explore new opportunities for growth and expansion. The good news is change, at least when it comes to careers, is not hard to come by. This checklist will help you prepare for changing your career, whether you want to expand your responsibilities or change careers and move into a new field. The checklist is a bit similar to the one above, because the career planning process is very similar (no matter the phase of your career).

First, establish your goals. Creating goals is something that should remain a constant in your life, whether you use them to plan your career, start a project or start a new life. Goal setting helps us see more clearly where we need to go and what we need to do to make that happen. So before you transition to a new career or acquire more job responsibilities, write down at least three goals you have and reasons for them.

Evaluate your reasons for wanting to change careers or promote. Ask yourself honestly if you want to change because you don’t like your job, because you don’t like your employer, or because you have an interest in gaining new skills and abilities and expanding your horizons. The last reason is the best reason to make a change.

Gain any additional training or education you need to realize a smooth transition into a new job or work opportunity. If you don’t know what the educational requirements are for a new opportunity, and then find out. Visit the BLS http://www.bls.gov to find out what the job requirements, educational requirements and salary are for the job or career field you intend to enter.

If changing careers, know that you may have to start from the ground up. This may mean a salary cut. If you know you will have to take a reduction in salary, then make up for it by finding a way to budget your expenses until your salary catches up with you. You should also evaluate whether you can afford changes to your salary. Hopefully, a career transition will eventually (or immediately in many cases) result in an increase, rather than decrease in salary.

If you plan to leave your current employer, always be sure to give them advance notice so they have time to find a replacement. This is especially true of highly technical jobs, where it can be hard to find someone on short notice and train them well enough to do the job right.

If you know you want to change careers but aren’t yet sure what you want to do, consider going into business for yourself. Evaluate your skills, abilities and talents. Look at your financial situation and assess your management and organizational skills. Many people have hopes of one day creating their own business. Now may be the time to do this. Just be sure you prepare for a big change like this by researching the home business process before you leap right in and quit your job. Many people who decide to start their own business end up keeping their jobs and working on their business part time during their off hours. This is a good way to give you time to wet your feet and get a feel for whether a home business is something you really want to start, and whether you can really make enough money from it to support your family. No matter what decisions you make, when career planning for change it is important you always take your time to evaluate and analyze your decisions. Never make decisions in the heat of the moment, and always be sure to research your alternatives and new occupations before you leap right in. If you do this, you will realize much success on your career planning journey!

Your True Talent Will Set You Free
When you get home from work, do you feel enriched, fulfilled and empowered? Or does it seem like you just finished an uphill battle on a treadmill? Imagine being paid to do what you love. You could return home feeling as though time stood still. Being "in the zone" virtually all day. Coming home invigorated knowing you consistently live a natural high. If this doesn't describe your day, then try the simple method below to reveal your true talent. Once you identify your unique expression, you will be motivated to experience it virtually everyday. You will have a deep burning desire to feed your soul and share it with the world. When you comprehend your purpose, engage it regularly. Perhaps Albert Einstein said it best, "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value." Your true, unique talent originates deep within your soul. Your heart is your direct connection to your soul. Therefore, speaking and listening to your heart will surface your true talent. Some people even say it's the reason you were put on this Earth. To experience your true nature with no boundaries and no embarrassment. To express your soul like no one else can. And to enrich other people's lives. You can discover your unique talent in only 4 steps. Here, it's crucial you follow Lord Thomas Dewar's advice, "Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open." Do the following every night for 21 consecutive nights: * Place a new piece of blank paper on your night stand. * Write "While I sleep tonight, I am connected with my heart and soul. I allow myself to travel with the Ultimate Spirit. I bring back to my consciousness my honest desire, life purpose and grand plan to integrate

with our current society to benefit others and myself. I now release the power and intentions of these words. And this is so." * Go to bed. Close your eyes. Mentally repeat the same phrase until you fall asleep. * During the next 21 days, remain consciously alert for any clues to your answer. Remember, following your intuition is manifesting that first thought that is unencumbered with human influence. In other words, if a desire "pops in your mind" to do something, do it without alteration. Internally ask your heart if it's your answer. If it feels right, may the wind be at your back and propel you to a wonderful journey filled with joy, laughter, love and excitement. In conclusion, when you discover, express and make a living with your true talent, you will live in bliss. You will soar like an eagle with your unique imprint. Life will be as it was meant to be. In short, as Dr. King emotionally said, you will be "Free at last. Free at last. Free at last!"

11 things you did not learn at school
Charles Sykes, the author of DUMBING DOWN OUR KIDS, provided for high school and college graduates a list of eleven things they did not learn in school. In his book, he talks about how the feel good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality, and set them up for failure in the real world. Rule 1. Life is not fair; get used to it. Rule 2. The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. Rule 3. You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.

Rule 4. If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure. Rule 5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity. Rule 6. If you mess up, it's not your parents fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Rule 7. Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes, and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So, before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. Rule 8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. Rule 9. Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off, and Very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time. Rule 10. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to Leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. Rule 11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

RESULTS
NOW ADD THE TOTAL NUMBER OF POINTS:

Over 60 points: Others see you as somebody they should "handle with care"
You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51 to 60 points: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather
impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chances and enjoys adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 to 50 points: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, and
always interesting; someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding; someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 to 40 points: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful and practical.
They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.

21 to 30 points: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you
as very cautious, extremely careful... A slow and steady plodder. It'd really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

Under 21 points: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive someone
who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything. They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only those who know you well know that you aren't.

Body Language and Interviews
People in the corporate world will unsurprisingly be inclined to accept innate forms of manners or conduct that are defensive instead of being frank, direct, and mutual. No wonder why sentiments are considered tough influences in the office and why the employer would normally act in response to condemnation or disapprovals. Most of these behaviors are readily recognized by other people. These include established ability to communicate completely and confidently, the ability to learn from errors and fiascos, and the fast and kind acknowledgment of the other colleagues.

However, not all forms of communication can easily be recognized and comprehended. Other forms of communication need certain levels of acceptance and assessment, as well as detailed comprehension, in order to learn the real message behind them. These neglected forms of communication can affect people’s social manner and career/future. Why? Simply because some people use non-verbal forms of communication or the so-called body language to detect and assess the behavior of another individual. They use body language as the core, underlying factor in determining people’s personality and total well-being.

Body Language and Your Future Career
Body language is a non-verbal form of communication. This involves communicating feelings/ideas through gestures or body movements rather than using words or other types of communication. With the depth and individuality of every form of body language, corporate people have learned to consider these other forms of communication as one way of assessing people, especially when applying for a job. In this way, they can silently evaluate the applicants and decipher whatever they are trying to say through their actions/gestures. Since body language can be either voluntary or involuntary, their meanings may vary. However, in the social context, psychologists and sociologists have learned to decipher the meaning of each body language, thereby enabling some people to understand the message being sent by the other person. For this reason, experts say that people should be aware of their gestures or hand/eye movements, as these will put a great impact on their

personality whenever they face other people especially during an interview. They should remember that in the interviews, employers are very meticulous on the way applicants react to the situation, on the way they answer the challenging questions, and on how they project themselves. In this way, employers can assess if such applicants can handle the job better than the others. Reading Facial Expression Facial expressions can suggest or express an individual’s emotions or feelings. In essence, facial expressions are controlled forms of body language. However, since it involves feelings or sentiments, most often than not, they are spontaneous and instinctive. Then again, during the interview, it is best to control most of the facial expressions and express a pleasant one instead. Interviewers or employers would like to see individuals who are eager to get the job and who can have a pleasant personality up front. It can only convey the applicants’ confidence with themselves. Insecure or unconfident persons would most likely be fidgety; and even if they will not say so, their actions speak louder. Eye Contact Eye contacts can also be a strong form of conveying emotions or feelings towards another person. In fact, experts say that eye contact can have a great impact on social manners. It can directly express one’s confidence and personality. During the interview, it is best to maintain a nice level of eye contact with the interviewer. This will bring out the confidence in a person. It can also build trust. Through eye contacts, interviewers can easily evaluate if the applicants are sure of themselves or if they are telling the truth.

Once the trust is built, it would be easy for the applicants to manipulate the conversation and eventually get the job. Avoiding the other person’s eye contact will send signals that may end one’s future career. It could mean that the other person is guilty of something or is trying to avoid the truth. Reading Gestures Gestures can also have a large influence on the interview. Body language and gestures can create a great effect on the observer. In most interviews, employers watch how the applicants react to certain situation through their facial expressions or “body and facial gestures.” For instance, if an applicant did not like the idea stated by the interviewer, the simple rolling of the eyes could indicate a negative effect. This simple gesture could mean frustration, annoyance, or arrogance. All of these things are important during the interview. It is best to be aware of them to avoid negative results. The very basis of body language as used in an interview is to convey confidence. Even though the applicants may not be 100% sure of themselves, it is imperative that they should appear as if they are. The way applicants positively express themselves through body language can build their entire future. As they say, actions speak louder than words.

How to Tell if Someone’s Lying just from Looking at their Hands
It’s a fact: other people’s lies make our lives more difficult. They distort and twist the truth, con us into believing things never happened, or took place when they shouldn’t have. There are literally thousands and thousands of ways people’s untruths and falsehoods taint and make living our daily lives more of an effort than it really should be.

So what can we do about it? How can we put a stop to lies the second we hear them and reveal the real truth, the actual facts, the exact situation? The answer is natural lie detection – techniques, strategies and knowledge that give a person the rare and invaluable ability to separate the real from the fake and always know what to believe and what to question. So, what does it consist of? Well, natural lie detection uses no machines, test papers, no video or audio recordings. It is, as the name suggests, a science based on human perception and skill. It has 3 main components. They are the interpretation and analysis of: body language, psychology, and verbal communication. By having a deep and expert knowledge of all three, you can become capable of spotting 99 out of 100 lies, whether they’re spoken over the phone, in person or even over the internet or via text message. Although learning these special techniques isn’t difficult when you have the time and proper reading material, it does require more space to explain than this short article allows. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t go over one way many liars give themselves away. This collection of principles falls under the body language category of natural lie detection and focuses solely on how a dishonest person uses, or avoids using, their hands when they’re being deceitful. There are 3 main hand-related signals of deceptiveness. Signal #1: HAND GESTURE FREQUENCY. People use their hands to visually illustrate and emphasize their statements – it’s a way of painting an abstract picture in the air to better help the person or people they’re talking to understand the concepts being covered.

When someone lies, however, their mind works differently to how it normally operates. Their thought process is dominated by the act of being dishonest convincingly and they therefore tend to change how they use their hands. The first change you should look for is in how often they gesticulate with their hands while talking. The majority of people, when they lie, lessen the amount of movements they make with their hands because they subconsciously want to restrict the volume of information being given to the person they’re lying to – out of fear of saying too much, either verbally or physically, and getting caught out or questioned. More proficient liars, or people who have rehearsed or planned a lie before telling it, actually tend to increase the frequency of their hand gestures. They’ll slice the air more with the blade of their hand or point their finger and clench their fists more frequently to illustrate and back-up what they’re saying. So, in short, look for a marked difference between the amount of hand gesticulations a person uses when in normal, day-to-day, obviously truthful conversation and when you suspect they may be lying to you or have a good reason to twist or otherwise alter the truth. Signal #2: HAND-TO-FACE ACTIONS. The second signal you should look out for is an increase in the number of hand-to-face actions a person makes when you think they could be lying. The main reason they touch their faces more often when lying than when telling the truth is because of the internal social pressure they’re feeling, which leaks out in the form of hand-to-face actions. Look for moments when the person momentarily covers their mouth with their hand or fingers. This is a subconscious attempt to stifle themselves and physically block the lie from leaving their lips – they do this to futilely try to block their falsehood from reaching you and thereby decrease the chance of getting caught and lessen their feeling of guilt. However, many people are on some level aware of how mouth covers may be interpreted (as a sign that they’re lying) so instead try to camouflage the action by instead lightly touching their nose (which indirectly covers their mouth with their hand).

Another reason many liars touch their noses is because of the increased blood-flow that occurs in its deep tissues, which creates an almost imperceptible tingle that, although not consciously felt and reacted to, causes the liar to unwittingly touch their nose for a moment. So, always keep an eye out for increased hand-to-face actions, especially those that cover a person’s mouth in some way or another. Signal #3: THE HAND SHRUG. When people don’t know the answer to something or want to convey the messages: “I’m not sure,” or “I don’t care,” they often lift and quickly drop their shoulders in a shrugging motion. A variation of shoulder shrugging is the hand shrug: a quick lifting and dropping of one or both upturned hands. Like shrugging with the shoulders, it’s a way of expressing a type of diminished responsibility in regards to an issue or topic – and that’s why liars tend to overuse the hand shrug while being dishonest. Instead of using it only to accompany words that express a feeling of uncertainty or ambivalence – the way people do when being honest – liars use the hand shrug alongside verbal statements that don’t relate to “not knowing” or “not caring.” They do this subconsciously to distance themselves from the lie they’re telling. Look for these 3 signs of potential dishonesty whenever you suspect someone might be lying and you’ll be a step closer to becoming a true master of deceit detection – a human lie detector.
