What is Career Development? Career development is how we bring meaning to the work we do by preparing and connecting the steps we take on The Pathway to Excellence. Our jobs, experience, and learning all help us to develop the character and competencies we need to thrive in our world. How we assemble the scope and sequence of what we do and the opportunities that are presented is all part of the process. We need to ensure that what we do forms a coherent narrative that aligns with who we are now and who we are becoming.
