I am 39 yrs old, based out of Pune having worked for 12 yrs in IT Services Industry and rest 3 years in Logistics \ Supply Chain Mgmt industry. For quite some time now, I am feeling "unfulfilled" in my role - both in terms of joy/job satisfaction as well as in terms of ability of my skills to give me a sustained employment over next 20 yrs of work life. Thus I need an expert counseling on following topics:
1. Which are my skills & personality traits which contribute to my USP in job market?
2. For these skills, which are the associated jobs available, across industries? (I am not limiting myself to IT Services Industry)
3. What are the trainings that I have to undergo, so as to deepen my skills - to suit various industry requirements?
4. I would also need recruitment assistance, to get into this new role.
Can you please guide me to reach any Pune based experts?

Dear Confused fellow,

When you ask advice to seniors then foremost requirement is to disclose your name properly. I do not see merits of withholding your name.

Following questions arise from the information that you have given:

a) What is your qualification?

b) In "IT Services Industry" what did you do?

c) What do you do in Logistics / SCM Industry? What is your designation? What are measures of performance of your job?

d) What are your strengths? Are there any outstanding achievements in your career?

e) What are your weaknesses? Ask others if you do not know reply to this question.

f) Do you like to use mathematical or statistical tools in your work? If yes, where you have used them? What was the outcome?

g) To develop your career, have you acquired any Diploma? If not then you may refer website of Indian Institute of Materials Management (IIMM) and choose a suitable course.

h) Have you taken capsule courses (of say 2-3 day duration) related to your field?

i) Have you taken capsule courses (of say 2-3 day duration) on soft skills?

Any advice is possible provided you furnish the above information.

Dear Confused Professional,

Congratulations on having the courage to know that you don't know it all (especially after a long working life). And, even more congratulations for identifying that you want to know more and that you want to know different! Believe me that while these conclusions themselves aren't that difficult to reach, the trick lies in accpeting them and then having the courage of taking action to address them. And, in this post, that's exactly what you've done! That is why I congratulate you.

A couple of suggestions for you:

1. Please email me your most current CV on (In this email also pls include your mobile number)
