Career Development

Resources to Get You Started

Decisions about how you spend your working life are critically important. You want to be happy with what you’re doing and feel you are accomplishing something of value, especially since you spend so many of your waking hours each week at work. Many people have difficulty making career decisions and plans because they’ve never really thought about managing or developing their career – or if they have, they don’t know how to do it or where to start. Sound like you? This website gives you a place to start.

Career development is an ongoing process – defined here as four progressive stages. You may find yourself at any stage at various times in your career. Which stage are you at right now? Hover your cursor over each stage on the right for a description.
