Career Development Resource Center

Providing Career Development Resources for both Human Resource, Supervisors, and Organizational Leaders and the Working Mom Workforce to increase awareness of Career Growth and Workforce Development. 

Watch our latest Growth Monday - a weekly motivational training to help guide you in achieving career goals.

Welcome to our Career Development Resource Center!

 

We believe that Career Development involves the development of an employee's skills and knowledge which enables them to plan and make informed decisions about their education, training, and career choices. It also involves having a Strategy, which includes any behavior, activity, or experience, to help employees meet their career goals. In our Career Development Resource Center, we will provide the tools necessary to empower working moms to get back to their Career Vision and stick with it; while providing additional resources for their employers to improve their Workforce Development/Learning & Development Initiatives, Processes, and Programs.

 

We use the Frank Parsons theory of matching careers to your talents, skills, and/or personality by using the below Career Development Process/Model to provide the most up-to-date resources:

01. Assessment

Assess what you desire in your Career. We recommend utilizing Self-Discovery exploration with a Career Personality Profile Test. 

02. Exploration

Explore what your Career Vision can look like. Check out the M.I.S. Map to explore. 

03. Preparation

Create a Career Development Strategy which outlines what positions, training, and education you need to pursue your Career Vision.

04. Implementation

Begin implementing your Career Development Strategy.

05. Decision Making

Determine your success and decide how you will proceed further.
