Career Development - How Have You Helped Someone Else?

Categories: community news, content


The theme of this month's content has been focused on career development. We've seen a lot of great information from contributors that has addressed ongoing skills development, reinventing yourself as a practitioner, and even content challenging you to think about why you chose the profession.

As you go through your professional journey, remember who helped you along the way and then ask yourself if you've paid it forward. Have you had the opportunity to mentor or guide someone as they go through their professional journey? If not, what has held you back - opportunity or apprehension? No matter where you are in your career, you will always have something valuable to lend to someone else's development. We don't always know what we don't know, but you should certainly be confident in what you DO know and don't be afraid to allow someone else the benefit of knowledge sharing. 

Additionally, make sure that you visit the Career Development practice area here within the community for additional resources to help you get the most out of your career journey.

What information or advice do you have for others who are seeking ways to develop their career in project management?
