BJC | Have you ever wished that you could share more information about your previous work experiences? Would you like to keep track of and share your professional interests and long-term career goals? BJC employees now have a place to capture their professional accomplishments and aspirations using two new Saba tools — the About Me page and My Development Plan — available through the Career Services Center.
You can use the “About Me” page to tell your professional story and share information about previous work experiences, professional interests, honors or awards you have received, projects and committees that you’re a part of, and degrees or certificates you possess.
You can include as much or as little information as you’d like in the About Me page, and you can update information as your career and priorities change over time. This tool is designed to help employees build the foundation to Prepare, Plan and Progress in their careers at BJC.
“The About Me page was designed to give employees a vehicle to share information about their professional accomplishments and aspirations,” says Courtney Seeber, BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD) senior consultant. “Completing the About Me page will enable employees to increase their visibility throughout the organization, so that their colleagues and leaders have a better understanding of their professional story.”
My Development Plan
The My Development Plan tool is designed to help motivate you to achieve your career goals. This is a personal set of career goals that you can keep track of in Saba. As your career and priorities evolve, you can update your My Development Plan to keep your career progress in motion.
Start by completing a self-assessment, where you can evaluate your skills, abilities and experiences for your current and future roles at BJC.
After completing the self-assessment, employees should continue their roadmap by creating a series of development goals. These goals will include details such as what education, connections or assignments are needed to achieve the goal and what obstacles the employee might encounter while working to obtain the goal.
“It is highly recommended that employees discuss their professional goals with a supervisor or manager, because they may have valuable input on achieving them,” says Beth Camp, BILD senior learning and development consultant. “The videos and other tools available in Saba can help anyone get started on their own.”
Accessing career tools
More information on how to access and fill in the About Me and My Development Plan pages can be found in SABA by clicking the following links: About Me and My Development Plan.
“True development takes place when you realize the areas you need to improve and take ownership of how you want to do it,” Seeber says. “At BJC you are in the driver’s seat for your career development, so take advantage of the opportunity to increase your visibility within the organization by sharing your unique professional story and tracking your career goals with these tools.”
