8 tips for getting your IT career back on track

Rich Hein | June 20, 2014
At one time or another, we've all felt were burned out, unwanted or on our way out the door. What if you're not ready to go? How can IT workers get their career back on track with their current employer?

Consider Greener Pastures
The grass isn't always greener. Even the best workplaces are imperfect, Van Vreede says. No matter the setting, you as an individual can begin to change the culture — it just requires a positive outlook on your part. That said, he adds, some company cultures just aren't the right fit. "In those cases, finding another opportunity is warranted."

Career setbacks happen to everyone. Every great leader has experienced failure, from Steve Jobs to Michael Jordan, but the key is to learn and evolve from those failures. Don't get caught in the quagmire of inaction. Identify your goals, create a plan to develop and refine your talent, and execute. You'll be back on your feet before you know it.
