  • What is Career Development? Career Development is the lifelong process of managing your living, learning and earning in order to move to where you want to be. Decisions you make each day - how you spend your time and what you identify as priorities - affect your career development. Ultimately, your career development is much more than the jobs you pursue - it is about how you want to live your life.
