Career Self Evaluation

Career self-evaluation is the process by which an employee evaluates his career growth through his performance and achievements. It is important to analyze how well we are doing in our career because it helps us become focused and also motivates us to do better. Self-evaluation gives one a sense of perspective and one can take the responsibility of career development and improvement. Many companies encourage employees to conduct self-evaluation of their careers to help them find out if they have reached their career goals or what they need to do in order to get what they want with in jobs, like, a better position, salary, different work duties etc.
