    Jobs and Career Development

    Businesses used to partner with employees to carry out employees’
    career planning and development. Times have changed. Now, businesses
    are coming to view career development primarily as the employee’s
    responsibility. If you are concerned about your career, as you
    should be during these turbulent economic times, then take complete
    ownership of it.

    Where do you want to be one, three, five or ten years from
    now? Do you have an action plan to get there? What career options
    are there for you to get greater challenge, variety or personal
    satisfaction? How well do you leverage your strengths and networks
    to advance your career? Are you using the latest job search strategies
    so that you can stand out from the crowd? In other words, how
    well do you manage your career?

    The following major categories of information will provide
    you with answers to these and other career development questions
    so that you will be in the driver’s seat of your professional
    and managerial life
