Practicing Career Professionalism, Part 1

ACHIEVING COMPETENCE IN PRACTICE CAREER PROFESSIONALISM AND INTEGRATE PERSONAL OBJECTIVES WITH ORGANIZATIONAL GOALS

WHAT IS PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT?

PERSONALITY

Many factors make a person unique in his or her own way. One of this is personality. We can define personality as the distinctive and characteristic pattern of thought, emotion, and behavior that define an individual’s personal style of interacting with the physical and social environment.

Personality plays an important part in the identification and choice of specific career. The first step to career choice and planning understands oneself. According to Holland (1985), a person may possess the following personality types:

Realistic – technician/engineer

Investigate – scientist/chemist

Artistic – musician/sculptor

Social – teacher/social worker

Enterprising – salesperson/lawyer

Conventional – accountant/banker

Realistic and Investigative types lack interpersonal skills and have difficulty with emotional expression of feelings. The artistic and social types are emotional in the expression of feelings and may dislike highly ordered and repetitive activities.

The personality type one has is linked to specific work environments.

ASPECTS OF AN INDIVIDUAL’S PERSONALITY

  1. MENTAL ASPECT – refers to his intellectual capacity.
  2. EMOTIONAL ASPECT – a person’ emotional make up is shown in his likes and dislikes.
  3. SOCIAL ASPECT – how well a person conducts himself with other people and how well he observes the rules of etiquette that govern society.
  4. PHYSICAL ASPECT – heredity and environment determine the entire physiological system of an individual. Posture, body build and size, compression and facial expressions, as well as the appropriateness and condition of clothes, comprise the physical appearance of a person. It has a lot to do with personality.
  5. MORAL ASPECT – this aspect personality has to do with a person’s awareness of the differences between what is wrong or right.
  6. SPIRITUAL ASPECT – is the consciousness of the higher values in life.

DEVELOPMENT – a continuous change for improvement in all aspects of the person: motor, social, emotional, intellectual, and moral.

INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIP – (outer self) Personal and social relationship of a person with others which develops systems of shared expectations.

INTRAPERSONAL DYNAMICS – (inner self) dealing with one’s inner self, like emotions

VISION – Philosophy of life.

PLANNING ONE’S CAREER

The exploration of one’s interest and aptitudes lead one to formulate career and educational decisions. It is important for one to focus on personal and social development.

“Know Thyself” – it means giving more than what is observed or what is public knowledge as one’s name. It means really knowing oneself in terms of one’s strengths and limitations. One’s sense of identity is usually defined by individual traits and goals, by personal; achievement and fulfillment, by social responsibilities and relationships.

A. Strengths

These are qualities, which we consider valuable or helpful in the things that we do. These are usually seen as positive and traits that enable us to achieve what we set out to do.

B. My Interests

One’s interests are usually manifested in what one chooses or prefers to do. A person may be interested in a basketball game, in reading a book, or in gardening. Any of these activities may give a person a sense of satisfaction or enjoyment.

C. Parents’ Interests and Expectations

The career development of an individual and one’s career decision- making skills will be enhanced if the family becomes involved in the process. The family has expectations, dreams, aspirations, and hopes for each member, which ultimately influences the person’s goals and choices.

D. My Values

A person’s values are his/her personal convictions about what is desirable. Values influences how a person acts and what we expect of others. These also influence our choices and our goals.
