In this module, you will learn more about the impact that self-assessment and various social learning experiences have on your career development and planning. By examining elements that influence learning and growth, you can ascertain how these factors have helped to shape your interests, abilities, and overall career awareness. This knowledge may affirm your current educational and career goals, or lead you to consider other options.
For this discussion, please present in two paragraphs, your own views on how you see the career development process help move you forward towards your personal and professional goals. Even if you are in a career that you like and plan to continue, why is it important to understand these steps? Considering the four main factors of influence that were presented in Krumboltz’s social learning theory, what personal factors and life experiences can affect your career choice and your future career trajectory? If you use outside sources in your discussion post, not just your own personal thoughts, then you must use APA citations for those sources.
