I'd like to develop a plan of action for my career

Using the career action plan template

Action planning will help you collect all of the information you need to make the best decision about your career.

Remember that action planning involves six steps:

  • Step 1: Identifying some career options
  • Step 2: Choosing a goal
  • Step 3: Working out the steps to get there
  • Step 4: Assigning timelines and priorities
  • Making it happen
  • Step 6: And all the time - staying positive

The Action Plan template will help you to consolidate your plan. The information collected during Action Planning steps can be typed into the specific location in the template.

Doing a plan is simple, but making it happen is often far more difficult. You are the master of your career – others can help you, but ultimately it's up to you.
