Career Development


Career development can be seen in two contexts: organizational development or (OD) and personal development.  In both contexts, it is the sum-total of an individual’s growth and development.

Studies have shown that career development is influenced by psychological, educational, sociological, economical and various other factors.  Both personal and professional factors help in determining and shaping career development.

Career development is an imminent need and necessity in today’s world, especially, when the business and work environment are constantly changing and evolving.  There is a need to constantly upgrade your skills and update your knowledge.

With work culture, changing, the onus of career development now falls on the individual rather than the organization.  It is imperative in the modern times to make yourself as employable as possible.  You must have the flexibility to learn, unlearn and relearn in order to adjust and grow with a dynamic work culture.

Career   development need not be a complicated issue.  When on the path of career development it is important to plan out how to go about this process.

First, there is a need to identify and analyze your specialized skills and abilities.  You must also take into accounts your aptitudes and interests, as these can make any future goals, that much more reachable.

The next step would be to have a set of goals and see how best you can achieve those, with the qualifications and skills you have.  At this stage, it is also important to keep your plans and ambitions in sync with those of the organization.

By keeping up with the latest developments in your specialized field, you can do a better job and bring about better results for both yourself and the organization at large.
