Growing your career

VCU University and Academic Professionals have the opportunity to grow professionally through a number of career opportunities that are job specific and/or career related to enhance their skills and grow within their current position and at the university. This growth and movement is an example of "career pathing." Career paths are visible and flexible career plans that provide opportunities for employees to advance through their careers by moving horizontally in their jobs through stages – from emerging to proficient to accomplished and all the way up to expert – as well as advancing up in job title as they gain competencies and experience.
