What if...

What if you knew more about the job market and your prospects?
What if you knew how your salary compared with that of others in your industry?
What if you knew how your salary compared with that of your peers, ex-colleagues, classmates?
What if you knew more about your employment opportunities in different cities?
What if you knew, to a ballpark, your total future lifetime career earnings ?
what if you knew your career growth path for the next 5 - 10 years ?
What if you knew which jobs will result in interesting opportunities and challenges?
What if you knew that switching now
--------Will not make a difference in your total earnings?
--------Will adversely affect you earning in the long run?
--------Will have a significant long term impact on your earnings?
What if you knew that you will have more responsibility but less pay if you remain in your current job for the foreseeable future?
What if you knew exactly what courses to take in order to improve your career?
What if you knew exactly which new skill sets to acquire now for a great career?
What if you knew which company will make you the happiest?
What if you knew which company will pay you the most in the long run?
What if you knew which company will provide you with the best environment for growth?
What if you knew which company will let you achieve the most?
What if you knew you will always earn more than you need no matter where you work?

What would it take for you to plan your career now instead of looking at just the next jump?
