Description

Want to give your career a boost? You will only do well if you are “career-fit”: able to do the job you do now well and seeming an ideal candidate if you want to move on. In a dynamic workplace changes mean you need to keep up to date, maintain and to extend your competencies. This does not just happen, but you can make it. This quick and easy guide provides proven, down to earth advice on:

  • How training and development works
  • Assessing what you need
  • Taking an initiative to go beyond what may be offered
  • Self-development as an on-gong part of successful career management

This book is an invaluable aid: it can allow you to add, in a manageable way, a powerful thread to your career management activity and thus give your career progression a positive boost.
