Take Charge of Career Change

Career management is ultimately a joint responsibility between employer and employee. Business is changing so rapidly and the level of competition is intensifying to the extent that the idea that an employer could map out a long-term career path for each employee with exact step-by-step roles is clearly not realistic. Things never stay constant enough for this to happen.

The employer is an enabler when it comes to career management. The role of the employer in supporting career development is to provide guidance and tools to help identify the right career direction for each employee.

This tool kit is a resource that provides a structure for each employee to get clear on what they want in their career. And then to give them the confidence, knowledge and skills to take appropriate action. In addition, this resource will support your employees in mapping out the specific career development needs that they have as well as in planning and executing their learning strategies. Suitable for use in organizations wanting a career transition resource and by individuals seeking their next career change.

Testimonials

"I found the Career Enrichment Toolkit a valuable resource to develop my skills and confidence, which helped me to achieve my short-term goals."

Anushya Rajmohan
Library Technician

"I used this tool kit at a time when I was reevaluating my career and was keen to take a pro-active approach in my next career move. I found the toolkit extremely useful as it allowed me to step back and consider what I wanted from my working life and what was important to me. Not only did I achieve a role that I am really enjoying, I also believe that I have successfully taken on a role that fulfills my short- and longer-term career goals."

Jacqui Mcgill
Quality Improvement Coordinator

"I completed the Career Enrichment Toolkit as part of a Career Development Program when on a contract at Victoria University. The toolkit helped me to take a step back from the everyday tasks at work and think about where I was and where I really wanted to be. When my contract ended, I changed career paths from marketing in the public sector to fundraising and communications in the not-for-profit sector, where I am reaping the rewards by finding new challenges as well as opportunities."

Marketing Professional
