Your Next Steps

Now that you’ve read through an overview of the areas within the field and seen a sampling of the positions available there, consider which areas hold the most interest for you, which ones you might like to explore in more detail, and which ones could help you advance your career. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the wide range of opportunities available to you and the energy, effort, and time it may take to advance your career, don’t worry. A career move, like other important moves you choose to make in your life, will take time and energy, but it’s a step-by-step process rather than an overnight event. The key to making a successful career move is to reflect on your strengths, understand your options, and then decide where and how you’d like to make a difference.

Chapter 3 will take you one step further along in this process. It will give you a fuller understanding of opportunities in the field by outlining some of the key roles, competencies, and activities of positions in training, HRD, and workplace learning and performance. The more you know about a position—both how it contributes to your organization’s or client’s bottom line and its day-to-day responsibilities—the more you’ll be able to make good career decisions for yourself. As you read through the next chapter, play close attention to the opportunities that most excite and challenge you. Chances are good that these opportunities represent the career options that are most worth your attention as you consider your next career move.
