Developing a Professional Career Requires Resources

When it comes to career development you will find significant resources that can add significantly to your research and development of you plan for professional growth. The career development international journal is a broad resource that will help.

The journal we refer to is published by Emerald Insight.

ABOUT: “Emerald is a global publisher linking research and practice to the benefit of society. The company manages a portfolio of nearly 300 journals and over 2,350 books and book series volumes, as well as providing an extensive range of online products and additional customer resources and services. – See more at:

The publication provides extensive research that can be invaluable in your development plans. The resources are available as a paid resource. You can check out examples of articles of interest such as “Career Success: fit or marketability?”  Click Here.

There are other well established resources that can help with building a plan for career or job advancement.  Here is a valuable list:

National Career Development Association

A resource for professional development that can “inspire and empower” reaching important life goals and objectives. The NCDA includes the latest scientific resources and studies and professional assistance.

Job List

I like the Job list as it is an actual compilation of valuable career development that allows you to quickly search for authoritative information. An example is Articles on “improving interview skills” with specific references to the various types of interviews and dealing with difficult interviewer questions.

Career Development Plan – Sample

It can be very helpful to refer to samples of how career development plans can be organized.  This organization provides samples for reference in developing your own plan.

Here is another reference on Sample Plans.

About Money

While we are referencing an article here, it provides valuable suggestions and descriptions of how to go about building the right plan.  Subjects like what to avoid in planning can provide valuable tips and perspectives.


I have valuable personal experience with Udemy courses. I needed to quickly learn how to create audio recordings and took a Udemy course that was perfect.  I highly recommend them. The link to them above will take you right to 6 achievable goals for your career.

Nothing could be more important for any individual looking to advance themselves in their career or profession. There is an extensive list of resources available to help think through the approach to career development and provide examples and templates that can point you in the right direction.

During my time as a corporate exec, I had many examples of people who indicated a desire to get ahead but few who really worked to develop a plan.  Some were relying on the company to guide them and others just hoped it would happen. Building a successful future is so critical to an individuals and their families success that it must be worth taking action on…right now!
