Why having a Career Plan can be useful
Most of us have personal goals or things we want to achieve in our lives. For many this will be about a career or the job you really want to have in the future.
Having a career plan helps us to clarify our short and long term learning objectives, how we will achieve these and the time we need to do this. A career plan is essentially a route map of development activities designed to take us to where we would like to be.
Regular review of our plan lets us see the progress we are making, build and adapt our development towards different roles or opportunities and continue the journey to our ideal job.
