It is important to identify any current career issues before you develop your professional development plan. Career issues can range from getting a new job, achieving a job promotion, or taking steps towards a career change.

Here are some questions to consider in your assessment:

  1. If you are in a new job, do you need to learn the basics to get up to speed and feel comfortable and productive?
  2. If you have been in your job for a while, do you strive to increase your competence or skills?
  3. Do you need to improve your performance in certain areas of a current job?
  4. Have (or will) your job duties change, requiring you to develop new skills or expertise?

  1. What is energizing or satisfying about my current job?
    1. Provide 2 – 3 examples
  2. What is draining or unsatisfying about my current job?
    1. Provide 2 – 3 examples
