The Career Development Process

The career development process is a combination of self-exploration ­– clarifying your interests and values – and investigation in the community, via the internet and other resources, and one-on-one meetings with those working in the field. At times, informational interviews with people in selected career fields may be the best way to learn about particular workplaces and jobs.
