Career research is a dynamic process. To be able to grow ones career, it is necessary to be aware and in touch with your careers’ trends. Use the trust relationships you already have to gain access, or build relationships to get access to the people and knowledge concerned with your field of interest.
One joins a religious institution because of personal interest and conviction. Apply the same process to your field of interest; join structures and groups fitting with your career focus. It is always easier and faster to build relationships in the safe environment of a club or interest group for example.
Have a view of participating and sharing rather than getting the perfect job. The rest follows almost automatically, just take part, share and build relationships in harmony with what you wish to achieve.
Another way of burrowing into what you want to do, focusing your career growth, is to become part of a project that needs the resources you bring. Being visible makes being noticed for fitting projects more possible. Become visible through building your dynamic resume, creating a personal web site, writing well researched articles and publishing them, taking part in online forums and chat rooms. Make your career research visible and communicate where you are and the progress you experience. This process of building a trusted online presence establishes you as an expert in your field as well. Remember, you do NOT have to be old and have two degrees to build an expert presence on the web. The process of establishing yourself as an expert on the web is the best place for every single individual to grow in the area of their interest. Your career research and staying with your trends evolves much faster, you have a written record the world potentially reads and comments on!

Taking part in a group opens the possibility of being adopted by a mentor that fits your requirements. Remember WIFY and WIFM, What Is in it For You and What is in it For Me. You are adopted because you have value to add to your mentor. Being mentored by an expert in your field of interest hooks you into current trends in a big way! A big part of your career research is engaging experts in the areas of your career you would like to expand and hone.
Use your current relationships to get access to the fraternity around your field of interest. Think of friends and their relationships, your family and people they know and at work, who could help you get access?
Doing what you love doing and being part of that fraternity globally ensures you are always up to date. Inevitably you move into and out of trends matching your focus and interest on queue.
