A successful career is the end-goal for each and everyone of us. A successful career has its own advantages and here are a few ways by which you can develop yourself to build a better career.
Step 1: List out your areas of interest. It can be anything. You might like the artificial intelligence and your friend might like web-development. It varies from person to person.
Step 2: Once you are done listing your areas of interest. List down the skills which you require to build a career of your interest.
Then, search for the best learning resources. Now a days, you can learn anything and everything on the Internet
Once done, try to allocate time to learn the skills which you are not good at and practice the skills which you are good at.
Step 3: Instead of just learning the skills, think about ways in which you can use your skills to solve real time problems. Basically, ideate the skills you learn. By doing this, you’ll be open to a more creative aspect of learning and problem solving.
To learn more effectively, one can brainstorm and collaborate with fellow peers and work on live projects.
And maybe, you’ll end up building a problem solving startup.
Step 4: Learn the supporting skills too. The required skills are not just from your areas of interest but you’ll also have to learn the supporting skills.

Step 5: After acquiring the necessary skills, look out for opportunities where you can apply your skills. To do so, one can easily find jobs by creating a profile on LinkedIn and keeping it up to date or if convenient, one can also look out for freelance projects on different websites like Freelancer and Fiver.
Learn from your previous projects (if any) and try to solve a problem in a better way than before.
The most important thing to note here is that learning is a never-ending process. And, one can learn as many skills as possible and apply it in his/her respective fields to build something.
