For many employees, career management continues to be a conundrum. There is more confusion than clarity largely due to many misconceptions that surround the idea of career. That there is no clear understanding even on the part of many first-line managers complicates and confounds the situation further. Business and engineering schools do their unseemly bit to build this confusion into the heads of the students by reinforcing many narrowly defined points of view about managing one's career.

Common Myths about Career

There are many myths about careers and how to manage them, which mislead young professionals and as a result frustrate them. Some of the common ones are as follows:

* Successful career means getting frequent promotions.
* Career management is the organization’s
* Delivering great performance in the current job automatically guarantees higher positions.
