What to Do When Your Job Doesn’t Offer Professional Development
Jobs with plentiful professional development opportunities are highly sought after. According to a Gallup study, 87% of millennials (and 69% of other respondents) rate “professional or career growth and development opportunities” as being an important part of a job. After all, most people would love to be offered the chance to learn new skills, network, and explore career advancement.
Larger organizations often have more room in their budgets to offer professional development initiatives. But if you work for a smaller organization, you may find that your options are limited. So what can you do if your job doesn’t offer professional development? With a little legwork, you can take the lead in finding and creating opportunities for yourself.
