career development

progression through a sequence of jobs, involving continually more advanced or diverse activities and resulting in wider or improved skills, greater responsibility and prestige, and higher income. Formerly, career development was seen as the responsibility of the employer, and many organizations had formal career development programs that marked an employee’s advancement through the levels of management. It is now more usually held to be the responsibility of the employee, sometimes as part of the CPD process.
