Career Evolution

Career development is a proactive approach you take to create the work and life you desire. It is much more than getting a job. It is a lifelong process of learning and growing. Career development enables you to make informed educational, occupational, and employment choices. It is an ongoing process to have meaningful work throughout your life. 

Our career evolution framework is built upon four key phases of career development. Each contains a collection of information that is specifically relevant for people experiencing that phase.

Many people start at the Self Discovery phase to reflect on personal values, interests and the experiences you've had so far. This is a crucial part of the process, and one that is often overlooked. Knowing what skills you have to offer to an employer, and being able to articulate them, is essential to job success.  

Depending on where you are in your career journey, you may wish to begin at another phase, move forward or backward, and revisit again at a later time, as your career continues to progress. The Career Evolution is a self guided tool, filled with links, resources and activities to support you, teach you and give you the opportunity to reflect and question. 

We wish you continued success in your career journey ahead.

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven't.
