Chapter 6. Creating a New Career Path > Elements of a Professional Design Plan

Elements of a Professional Design Plan

With a PDP, your overall career path and its details can be examined. You draft and redraft your plan as often as needed until it accurately reflects your career vision. Think of the PDP as a template for spelling out your career plans and professional activities. Its elements provide a format and the space to think about what you need to do, what you’re willing to do, and what you can do to achieve your career dream. They’re aids for filling in the details. The PDP comprises the following seven elements:

  1. career calling statement

  2. description of professional niche

  3. long-term and short-term goal statements

  4. practical considerations

  5. action plan

  6. interim measurable success milestones

  7. adjustments and revisions.
