A career is a general course a person chooses to pursue throughout working life. Career planning is an ongoing process whereby an individual sets career goals and identifies means to achieve them. There are different approaches to career planning and development; however, every approach will include (under one name or another) the following components:

You may use in this assignment one or more self-assessment instruments in order to describe item 1 of your development and career plan. You were provided with RIASEC questionnaire, if you prefer you may access additional self-assessment instruments but this is not mandatory. Please make sure you address all the above components when creating your personal development and career plan. Let's keep in mind that getting to know yourself is not a singular event. Considering the time available for developing the career plan in this course, we must acknowledge that the value of this exercise is more in familiarizing you with the process than in the quality of the product itself. So, consider this as your initial attempt at developing a career plan, which will - of course - get expanded, modified, or even completely changed in the years to come. But, it is a start. Your career plan should not be shorter than three pages and not longer than five (12 pt font, double-spaced).
