What if your high-potential early professionals focused their career aspirations on opportunities that will be available within your organization? And, they had the tools they need to outshine external candidates as the right fit. Think of the improvement in engagement and reduction in turnover.
To get promoted, change roles, or shift business areas, early professionals have to know how to grow their connections, understanding, and access capital to become the candidate for an open position. They have to network to get to know the decision maker and the team, conduct informational meetings to understand what’s important all of them (beyond the job description), and ask the right questions to identify what holes exist in their qualifications that they can fill, maybe with company support. Successful advancement like this leads to engaged employees. If they are unsuccessful at moving within the company, they will leave.
