Part 2: Introduction > Building Your Career

Chapter 7. Building Your Career

Given the present and future flux of training, HRD, and workplace learning and performance, being committed to a career in this field means that continual professional growth is no longer optional—it’s a survival necessity, a crucial investment in your future success. Positioning yourself for advancement, changing jobs, or shifting to consulting is dependent on your performance excellence. And performance excellence is related to your professional expertise and proficiency. The concerns and reasons for staff training and development programs are just as relevant to your situation.

To keep myself on the leading edge of training and to meet the changing work demands, I vote for continuous learning. . . . As for myself, I signed up for 200 hours during this two-year period. I have completed such courses as consulting skills, facilitation techniques, and Zenger-Miller Trainer Certification. I try to take as many of the engineering and technology classes in the department as well.
