Is There a Long-term Career in Shared Services?
How good are you at ‘managing to numbers’? That’s a skill you might need to develop if you want to have a solid career ahead of you.
Add to that a good understanding of IT, the ability to demonstrate first-hand experience of (or exposure to) operations – plus a strong dose of relationship management and a heightened sense of self-promotion … and you might just stand a chance in the competitive world of corporate leadership.
Don't be intimidated! But there is no excuse for not thinking strategically about your career right now. A savvy self promoter can build a long-term career by cleverly developing opportunities that leverage their experience around strategic growth, for example. But you'll need to think outside the box.
