The journey to a fulfilling career involves many factors and is not a straight path. Many people struggle to understand all factors involved in finding the right career fit and become distracted by the bends, re-routes, and detours that often present itself along the way. This Career Toolbox strives to provide you with tools and strategies to help you navigate, thrive, and ultimately achieve career success.
Each topic is designed to explain its importance to your career development (See it.), provide more in-depth information (Learn it.), offer questions to reflect on and further apply in your life (Do it.), and suggest additional resources to enhance learning.
Use this Individual Development Plan (IDP) to clarify and create a career development action plan. Select 2 or 3 areas you would like to work on and develop a realistic plan to begin working on these life skills. Use these resources to improve and practice skills employers want you to have. This plan is meant to be revisited and flexible while you accomplish your SMART goals. Reflect on your progress (or lack of progress) with a career counselor, mentor or trusted advisor. Small steps and greater awareness make a big difference!
