Tips on how to ensure that your career is on the right track
How much thought have you put into the trajectory of your career?
Career pathing is the process used by an employee to chart a course within an organisation or industry for their career path and career development.
Recruitment specialist Frances Kazan says career pathing should ideally be the mutual responsibility of both the employee and the employer.
Kazan adds that career pathing should be a continuous journey and that the employee should always try to show initiative.
