missing career front end – part 2 (job seekers)

Talking about the next set of issues currently in job seeking.

Now I know which job I want do and have a shortlist of companies that I want to work for, but what kind of career progression can I expect from the job role in a company? What about cross-functional roles, will I be able to gain exposure at more than what I start doing or will I be pigeon-holed? What is this company culture like, will I really like it there? What if I get bored on the job after a few years or want to do something different, what are my exit options? What have other people in this space done a few years after starting out in this role?

When do people think about higher studies in this career path? What kind of higher degrees are they getting? Does it really help them grow in the career path faster?

Do the campus company presentations cover the ground in so much detail – that is just a preview to the investment that you need to make with your career choice, just like the cover page of a mutual fund, it is up to you to dig deeper, go further and look for the answers you need before you take the plunge.

Where do you seek this information currently? Is there a good website which helps you get the career insights from people who have gone ahead in the career paths of your choice? What about the emerging career paths, where do you find information about these? Do share your opinion, I’m all ears….
