Career growth is personal. If you have a clear definition of what career growth means in your own mind, you will be able to take advantage of growth opportunities. More than likely, there are opportunities both within your present organization as well as opportunities that are provided by outside resources. Both are valuable.
Define career growth for yourself. That could mean the ability to learn new skills and use them in your job. Career growth for some might be to work for an industry leader. For others, growth is the opportunity to take on new challenges and responsibilities. What is your idea of career growth? Remember that your career growth, while mostly a map of your career goals, can also include some personal goals. Once you’ve defined your career growth plan, write it down and start working toward your end result.
