Career Development is the lifelong process of managing learning, work, leisure, and transitions in order to move toward a personally determined and evolving preferred future.
In educational development, career development provides a person, often a student, focus for selecting a carrier or subject(s) to undertake in the future. Often educational institutions provide career counselors
to assist students with their educational development.
In organizational development (or OD), the study of career development looks at:
·         how individuals manage their careers within and between organizations and,
·         how organizations structure the career progress of their members, it can also be tied into succession planning within most of the organizations.
In personal development career development is:
·         " ... the total constellation of psychological, sociological, educational, physical, economic, and chance factors that combine to influence the nature and significance of work in the total lifespan of any given individual.
·         The evolution or development of a career - informed by  Experience within a specific field of interest (with career, job, or task specific skills as by-product)  Success at each stage of development,  educational attainment commensurate with each incremental stage, Communications (the capacity to analytically reflect your suitability for a given job via cover letter, resume, and/or the interview process), and  understanding of career development as a navigable process. (Angelo J. Rivera)
·         "... the lifelong psychological and behavioral processes as well as contextual influences shaping one’s career over the life span. As such, career development involves the person’s creation of a career pattern, decision-making style, integration of life roles, values expression, and life-role self concepts.

Career Development: Skill Development

Skill Developmentmeans developing yourself and your skill sets to add value for the organization and for your own career development. Fostering an attitude of appreciation for lifelong learning is the key to workplace success. Continuously learning and developing one's skills requires identifying the skills needed for mobility at Cal, and then successfully seeking out trainings or on-the-job opportunities for developing those skills.
Developing your skills begins with assessing which skills are important for your desired career development. Read about career skills in the  section of this website. Speak with your supervisor or manager  and other career mentors to identify the types of skills that will help move you forward in your career.
Your development should follow the 70-20-10 rule:
70% of your development should come from on-the-job activities and action learning. This can include development experiences like managing a project, serving on a cross-functional team, taking on a new task, job shadowing, job rotation, etc.
20% of your development should come from interactions with others. This includes having a mentor, being a mentor, coaching, participating in communities of practice, serving as a leader in a staff organization,
