both at the same time. In addition, while most job seekers look outside their current organization for that new opportunity, a person may be able to explore new roles, opportunities, and career alternatives without changing companies, especially if they work for a large organization. Furthermore, if a person is not ready to leave their current job, they can ask their boss what other projects they can take on that align more closely with the type of skills and experiences they would like to attain (Santen, 2017). Most people do not search for career paths or opportunities that fall outside what fits their college education or degree, or where they have related industry experience. But many people make transitions into other career paths or industries because they have transferable skills. Also, if there is a networking event within an industry where a person would like to work, they should attend it. This is a great place to meet leaders, influencers, and decision-makers and ask questions about how they got into their field/career. Connect with them on LinkedIn and continue the conversation and learning process. At the end, making a career choice is a big decision. It doesn't have to be rushed.

I would like to support the arguments that, one can advance in a single occupation by moving up from an entry-level job to a management position, for instance career paths and career ladders that an employer use to help employees in their career progression within the organization. Employees usually feel more engaged when they believe that their employers is concern about their growth and provides avenues to reach individual career goals while fulfilling the organization mission, HARRISON, R. (2000).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
