Evaluate Long-Term Career Options

The LORD Career Roadmap is a tool for employees to leverage while considering a long-term career strategy.  There are three main components to the Career Roadmap:

  • Information to consider while developing a long-term career strategy
  • Detailed information describing various functions and "days in the life" of various roles
  • Sample information to create your own development plan

Develop your Plan

Once you have identified your career strategy, the next step is to put a plan in place to make your interests and aspirations known.  Through a tool we call the Employee Development Action Plan, you can collaborate to create this strategy and specific action steps toward achieving your goals. This can then be shared with others for feedback and assistance along the way.
