How can you be sure it is worth it?
Those who develop and implement strategies to pursue career-specific goals achieve greater career success as measured by salary, promotions, and level of responsibility (Personnel Psychology, 58, 367–408). They also report greater career satisfaction and rate themselves as more successful than their peers compared to those without career plans (Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, 81, 733-749).
Where possible we have used published research to inform our recommended tools. The presenter has significant hands-on experience in working with research teams to attract funds and build partnerships.
