Career progression is a process which is informed by the plans individuals have for the future and therefore entails moving from one place to another. The movement can be either vertical or horizontal depending on what career aspirations one has and the available opportunities. It is therefore important for people who are in careers to visualise their career goals and work out different steps they need to take in order to achieve their aspirations.
Career progression involves personal development, educational development and climbing the corporate ladder. Throughout the process there is growth that occurs which is mainly informed by the attitudes that people have regarding their career journey.
