Welcome to Episode 32 of Career & Employability Talk.

This is a follow-up to Episode 31.

On today’s episode of the podcast, I shared on “Using SWOT Analysis for Career Planning”.

Before we proceed, it is important for you to know that “The key to a successful career lies in knowing what you are good at and what you like to do, and then putting all your energies into becoming the best at what you do.”

Also, according to Louis Pasteur “Chance favours the prepared mind.” The more intentional you are in your career the more predictable it is to achieve success in your career journey.

On this episode of the podcast, you would learn:

  • That SWOT Analysis is a very renowned business strategic planning tool employed to evaluate a project or business venture. And it is a very useful concept that can be applied to the career planning process.
  • That the word SWOT is an acronym which means Strengths Weakness Opportunities and Threats. SWOT Analysis has two key dimensions – internal components (Strengths & Weakness) and external components (Opportunities & Threats). 
  • What makes SWOT especially powerful – it can help you uncover opportunities within you and your career that you would not otherwise have spotted. If you look at yourself using the SWOT framework, you can start to separate yourself from your peers, and further develop the specialized talents and abilities you need to advance your career.
