Part 2: Getting Your IDP Started: Exploring Career Values and Success

This workshop combines pre-workshop activities (completed independently in advance) and a virtual, face-to-face workshop. Through this combined approach of asynchronous and synchronous learning, you will have time for personal reflection and discussion, which will lay the foundation for the completion of your Individual Development Plan (IDP). You will take time to reflect on what you like doing, what you hope to create, who you hope to inspire, and how you want to contribute to social issues you care about (IDP: Step 1--Ideas Generation). Second, guided reflection on your experiences will help you begin to evaluate the technical, transferable, and personal skills you bring to the workplace (IDP: Step 2--Self Assessment). Finally, you will consider your career related values and personal definition of career success These activities will prepare you to research three possible career paths (IDP: Step 3--Career Exploration).
