professional growth in a career in human services. our plan should be approximately seven to ten pages in length, not including title or reference

&here would ) be employed> ?oing what>
&hat education or training would that re.uire>
&hat type of credentialing would that re.uire>
&hat other types of personal or professional changes have to occur>
+ow will this affect other parts of my life>
&here do ) want to be three years from now> )n five years> )n %@ years>
+ow do ) plan to prevent stress and burnout in my professional and personal life>
-nother way to conceptualize the plan is to describe in detail where you would like to be in your career in five years. Then ask yourself: what are the
steps ) have to take to get there>
ou may also explore more than one pathway for your career if you are undecided at this point. 8ote what factors will affect your decisions, and

how decisions will be made, and how decisions will affect the rest of your life. ou are also encouraged to examine how your current skills, values,
strengths and resources affect your plan. &hat is already in place> &hat needs time and effort>
