Career Management Skills

The Australian Blueprint for Career Development has 11 career management skills focussed on three main areas of personal management, learning and work exploration, and career building.

In a rapidly changing work environment, individuals need to think about careers and jobs in a way which allows work satisfaction, social and economic success and personal growth. Globalisation and developments in technology have meant there are “new” jobs and some “old” ones have disappeared. Flexible work opportunities such as casual contract and project work are becoming more common. Within a lifetime an individual may work in a number of professions or industry areas, acquiring and developing new skills along the way. People may work in areas that may not have been dreamed of when starting the journey.

See the document below for a list of the 11 essential career management skills.
