Map your Career Path with a Career Map
What is a Career Map? A Career Map is most typically a visual portrayal of the desired progression of a chosen career. The career map can be described as three distinctive types; Career Path Map, Career Mind Map, or Career Road Map.
Career Path Map is a career map that outlines a linear progression in a single career field. This is most suitable for someone desiring a career ladder progressing to greater responsibility and consistent pay increases. As with any path, a Career Path Map covers a defined territory which is able to be traveled by foot in the period of a day. In other words, Career Path Map keeps one’s career map limited to a specific career field and consists of a series of successive jobs easily attainable within the period of a lifetime. Career Path Map information can often be found within career information websites.
Career Mind Map is a career map that permits you to map a non-linear, divergent and diverse career. This is most suitable for those who desire career options, career variety and creative (not necessarily artistic) expression. Many “P” MBTI Type Codes prefer career mind map approach. Career Mind Maps are the most visually interesting career maps. Career Mind Maps blend diverse career interests into possible career options and string them into a career map using career threads between the career options to tie them together. It is recommended that you choose to work with a career coach such as The Career Profiler who is skilled at blending career interests, knowledgeable about a wide variety of career options, and able to decipher common threads.
Career Road Map is a career map that depicts a career progression that crosses career fields. This career ladder is most suitable for persons desiring to rise to positions of leadership within the lifetime of their career. Career Road Maps to Leadership typically require a combination of career ladder and career lattice. The Career Road Map process focuses heavily on identifying and building sequentially upon competencies from one job to another.
