What is a career?
Career is an individual’s work and life roles over their life. This includes paid and unpaid such as student, volunteer or parent. The occupational roles people hold can lead to various skills, experience and qualifications.

Career development is a process of planning and direct action toward personal work and life goals.
Career development success can be measured in terms of work and life satisfaction and employability. McCrindle research says, 

Australia's average job tenure today is 3.3 years - based on this, Australians starting (part-time) work at 18, and retiring from all work at 75 will have around 17 employers in their lifetime.

The rapidness of change and introduction of technology will require continual learning–development of new skills and knowledge.

Why career development?
Career development helps you to be prepared to adopt, adapt and navigate change!

We can be sure that work is continually changing. What satisfies us today, may not feed us financially or creatively in the years ahead. Rapid change requires us to keep pace and to actively seek new ground. It’s vital for you to keep currency, especially with regard to skills, knowledge and experience. Most importantly, our working life needs to energise us passionately towards the future.
