career pathing
Career pathing requires people to take an honest look at their career goals, skills, knowledge, experience, and personal traits.

How much thought have you put into the trajectory of your career?

Career pathing is the process used by an employee to chart a course within an organisation or industry for their career path and career development.

Recruitment specialist Frances Kazan says career pathing should ideally be the mutual responsibility of both the employee and the employer.

Kazan adds that career pathing should be a continuous journey and that the employee should always try to show initiative.

At the same time, she argues that companies who do not practice career pathing have a high rate of employee turnover.

Career pathing requires an understanding of what knowledge, skills, personal traits, and experience is needed for an employee to progress their career laterally, or through promotions and transfers.

We believe career pathing must start before you even hire somebody.

It's not even about age. It's about attitude, skills level, capabilities, capacity, commitment, confidence and all of those things. When you've got all of those things, you need to develop them.

People will see when you're interested about your career because you'll take your job seriously and ask questions.
