Career Development Planning Discussion

Career development planning discussions provide an opportunity for you and your career counselor and/or supervisor to focus on the actions and support needed to
increase your knowledge, skills and experience for your current job/role and to meet your career goals.

Career development planning should be an ongoing activity, and is required once a year during the Annual Review discussion.

 Come to the discussion prepared with your completed Career Development Plan*. The Career Development Plan includes the Personal Engagement List, a
series of questions about your career goals, and an opportunity for you to document actions to achieve those goals.

 Take advantage of the Career Development Planning tool, and the opportunity to engage in a discussion with your career counselor about your career
aspirations and professional growth needs.

 After the discussion you should update your Career Development Plan as needed based on your career counselor’s feedback, act on the actions documented,
and monitor your plan throughout the year.

* Ideally you should create your career development plan in the myPerformance application; otherwise you can utilize this word document template.
