Advancing in Your Career

Advancing in your career may take time, but you can take steps toward growth at any time during your employment.

  • Speak to your supervisor, mentor, or HR representative about logical next steps to grow and advance within your organization; identify and visualize the position you want.
  • Discuss with NPRC faculty, SSS, or Career Services the skills you will need to develop; create a college/career plan based upon acquiring the necessary skills and credentials.
  • Network with colleagues and community members who work within the field and position to which you aspire.
  • Take on work assignments beyond your job description as you are able (committee work, fundraisers, single projects, etc.); this “extra” assignment will demonstrate you are a hard worker, team player, help you to network, and will teach you new skills.
