Review the Roadmap to Success (Links to an external site.) tool to help you gather information which you may wish to include in your career plan.

In your paper,

Identify your long-term goals (five years or longer).
Identify the skills and qualifications related to this type of role.
Assess the qualifications you already possess.
Determine new skills, knowledge, certifications, and training needed for the position desired.
Create action steps needed to take to be qualified for the position you would like to pursue.
