Case Examples for Applying the Career Opportunities Model

How does this model work in the real-life decision making of professionals in our field? Here’s how it helped Sam and Amelia.

Sam’s Story

Sam has been a trainer in his organization for the past seven years. He has enjoyed his work but he’s been complaining recently of being rather bored by what he describes as “delivering the 'same-old, same-old’ over and over again.” Lately he’s been wondering what his options are. Although he doesn’t want to leave the field, he knows he needs to do something to reenergize his career. So Sam makes a plan. He decides to attend the next meeting of his professional association because it is going to focus on e-learning and e-training (Trend), and there he learns about some of the exciting possibilities in e-training. Armed with some facts, some ideas, and renewed energy, he schedules a meeting with the head of his department. Sam knows his company has begun investigating e-training, but he hasn’t been in on planning when and how it’s going to happen.
