Where would you like to be in your career five or ten years from now? What skills will you need to learn or improve upon to reach your goals? How will you learn these skills? Career development is about asking and answering these questions. It is about skill development and lifelong learning. Some of the competencies you desire may be technical, managerial, or leadership oriented. They may be learned on the job, through mentoring relationships, by taking courses and attending conferences, by participation in professional societies, or through professional licensure. Think about which activities best fit your needs now and in the future, because career development is essential to advancing in your career and growing as a civil engineering professional.
