Career development is no longer a case of climbing the corporate ladder. The world of work has changed dramatically in the past decade - and so have our expectations. Changing jobs, roles, locations, sectors and careers is becoming the new normal. Furthermore, the shift to remote working due to the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered the work landscape and, for many, has led to reflection and a desire for a career change.

This book will help you:

· Set career development objectives;

· Recognise your achievements;

· Build upon your strengths; and

· Identify personal and professional development opportunities.

The book includes exercises and activities to help you understand what is important to you in a job and how to attain your career goals

The author outlines the role of mentoring in career development, and how to build your personal brand, present yourself professionally online and in person, and find the resources you need to achieve your development goals. She also provides a practical example of a career development path in the cyber security sector.

By reading this book, you will be able to assess the advantages and disadvantages of different career paths and set clear career development goals
