Your thoughts are intresting , I agree with you in toto. If I look at myself 5 years down the line.......its totally true atleast in my case. I have also seen many people reaching the top without sufficient stuff - stuffed in them but have/had the capacity to market themselves probably in the art of 'resume writing' and ' facing interview skills'.
There are no fixed formullas for success and it comes at its own. I personaly believe that it all depends on your fate, karma, opportunity, and time. Its also true that in todays ever changing hr roles, we should develop our own compass and guide ourselves for what-ever job offers we have......have to be more flexible in recessionery times.
It was a nice reading for me........keep posting.........take care..........

I am today running a HR consultancy services since 5 years offering to very spefiic and niche markets after exposing myself to long years of exmployment in marketing, advertising, labur management and in service sector. Whaterver I have learnt in my employment arena I am practicing today.
It was not so called plan like "structured well defined career path" as some may state. Whatever responsiblity came over in my career journey so far I took it and made the best of it. Most importantly one
should be good at management and marketing skills ad only then one can be successful in business.
finally i am considered opinion one should absolutely flexible and willing to move around and look for slightest opportunities to tap on it. Mostly opportunities are disguised in the form of problems in our career journey.
All the best.

when the HR person themselves dont have a career plan they why do they ask questions such as
why do u want to change ur job
why u selected this field
what are ur future plans, where do u C urself after 5 yrs,,
what made u choose this course
such questions the HR ask the candidates and make the candidate feel as if he is good for nothing,, isnt this an act of foolishness on the part of HR,
i hope u will agree with mee,,,
HR on one hand themselves start coming into the field because they cannot prove their worth in other fields and then start asking questions to candidates about their decision regarding career ,, wot a HR mindset u people have ,great,,
