A career is the course or progress in work for a certain individual from the beginning of his employment. It is often used in a positive sense as a good career or a successful career , ie successful development in one or more areas and activities.

Very often, career means work in areas that require professional knowledge and skills, and in this sense, professional training or accumulated professional experience in a given field.

The word originates from the French carriere (c. 16th century), which in turn derives from the Latin word “(via) cararia” (chariot road), which in turn comes from the Latin word carrus or “car” , chariot ”.

In the west, with the development of a wider range of professions and opportunities for professional development, the so-called career counselors .

In the 21st century , it is also not uncommon to develop several careers (parallel careers) or, in other words, to develop in several different professional fields.

Career development is a process of professional growth, which includes the accumulation of new knowledge and skills and the pursuit of continuous improvement.

Career development is a set of well thought out and managed moves. Management is a process that includes first of all assessing the level at which we are in our professional development, deciding what we would like to achieve and taking the necessary steps to achieve the set goals.
