YOUR CAREER PATH: Your unique career path is based on your professional aspirations and your previous and future career decisions. The Organization supports you with a range of resources to help you plan and implement your career decisions.

Plan your career

Use the career workbook to reflect on your career. The career workbook is designed to help you identify your strengths, skills, and work preferences. It contains tools for determining your career goals and developing an action plan.

The workbook consists of three parts divided into eleven chapters called “activities”. You can either work on the activities sequentially, or just choose the ones most relevant to you.
