It’s been said that the person who cares most about your career is… YOU! While there are many good managers, supervisors, and mentors who care deeply about their people and invest in their development, the fact remains that the person most invested in your career is you. So, what are you doing to develop your career?

Career development is the on-going process of improving skills to develop a career over time. Attaining self-knowledge and exploring career options are important aspects of the career planning process. Career growth is up to you — the individual. Taking time to focus on your career development can enhance your knowledge and skills, and assist in growing your leadership competencies. Employee development also has the added effect of contributing to the growth of your organization.

AFN recently published an exciting and helpful guide to developing your career: the Career Development FY 2022 Resource Guide. This important document explores important tools such as the Individual Development Plan (IDP), a developmental partnership between employees and their supervisors which serves as a sort of roadmap for career development. The Resource Guide also describes various Training Programs available to FAA members, including the FAA Leadership and Learning Institute (FLLI), eLMS Training Programs, and more!

Additionally, information on developmental programs such as the Aspiring Managers Program (AMP), FAA Mentoring Programs, and the Emerging Enterprise Leaders Program (EELP) is provided. For concentrated and focused career development, be sure to check out the sections on detail assignments. Finally, the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center also offers several specific career development programs. Check out all of these and more in the Career Development FY 2022 Resource Guide! It’s time for your career to take flight!
