How to Create a Career Development Plan that Suits Your Career Goals A few years back, career development plans were generally outlined by the employer for an employee. Employees began their careers at an entry-level position in an organisation and with increased seniority and training, used to work their way up to achieve success. Today, career development plans work quite differently. Unfortunately, majority of the organisations don’t outline it anymore. Now, career development plans depends individually on each of us. So, what’s the best process to create the right career development plan? Following are 4 career development plan perceptions that can help you to take a jump start in your career: Try to become a resourceful employee You should always strive to find new ways for creating opportunities. At the same time, do your best to create value or solve a problem/issue for the organisation. Your worth in the organisation automatically increases, when you take a challenging assignment/project and succeed. This provides an opportunity for you to make a strong statement when issues like performance and salary increment are discussed. Find out how the organisation feels about your performance Ensure that you’re always open to communication with others in your organisation and try to initiate it. If possible, hold meetings with your employer every month and discuss your development. For example, find out whether you’re on target in the development plan or what are the things requires work to keep your development plan on the right direction. Have complete charge of your career development process. Ask yourself the things you’re learning from the position, experience and organization. You’re probably losing ground in your career development, if you don’t feel moving forward or in the right direction. Try not to become too comfortable If your position in the organisation is quite easy and comfortable, there’s a chance that you’re settling for less which is not good for your success patterns. Never settle for anything less in your life, when you can accomplish more. Many people have a motto in life that if they aren’t in an uncomfortable situation, then they feel lacking in proper growth. Such people try to put themselves in challenging situations to get the best out of them. If you become too self-satisfied about your work, there’s a high chance that the organisation will do that too. Find environment that challenges and energizes you to the fullest. Don’t become incompetent People often stop caring about their position in an organisation after spending a lot of time on the same. They even stop thinking about how they look while showing up for work. Avoid such situations by taking an active role in your career and life.
