10 Career Killers to Avoid

Network World has an interesting article by Thomas Hoffman that I thought would be good to share. It’s called 10 career killers to avoid.

To quickly summarise, here is the quick list:

  1. Failing to have a life plan.
  2. Not keeping your skills current.
  3. Failing to deliver results.
  4. Confusing efficiency with effectiveness.
  5. Believing that you are irreplaceable.
  6. Knowing all the answers.
  7. Surrounding yourself with “brown-nosers.”
  8. Forgetting to give credit to others.
  9. Failing to self-promote.
  10. Losing perspective.

I know I am guilty of numbers 2, 9 and 10, so I guess that I have some work to do.

Check out the list at the link above and get a clue.
