Career development

Career development is a series of activities or the on-going/lifelong process of developing one’s career. Career development usually refers to managing one’s career in an intra-organizational or inter-organizational scenario. It involves training on new skills, moving to higher job responsibilities, making a career change within the same organization, moving to a different organization or starting one’s own business.

  • At Fischer & Partners Recruitment, we are quite proud that we regularly receive compliments about being such great recruiters, giving real attention, approach people personally, show genuine interest, and try to help people. What is self-evident to us does not always appear to be evident in practice. Of course, things sometimes go wrong with us, but it is good to have in mind what you are striving for. Hence this list of which I think a good recruiter should meet.


  • Are you at the ceiling of your position, and do you aspire to a leading IT role? Do you want to determine the course of the IT department, and do you have strategic insight? Are you curious about what the career move towards IT Manager can mean for you?


  • There are good and bad days in every job. It's just part of working life. It always becomes problematic when the second condition becomes chronic. When you wake up in the morning and hope that the week will soon pass; if you would prefer to quit the job, if frustration prevails instead of lust and the desire to change careers and grows.


  • When you started your finance studies, you were among the students who enthusiastically raised his hand when the professor asked the question: "who wants to become a CFO?" You were probably one of many. Many financials have the ambition to become CFO (Chief Financial Officer) before their thirtieth birthday. You were starting as a starter in the assistant controller position, acting as a business controller within a few years, and then making the sought-after promotion to CFO. However, getting a position as CFO is no small feat! We do not promise you cows with golden horns, but five handles to grab the cow by the horns and realize your dream of becoming a CFO.


  • Financials were rarely sought after. Everyone seems to be looking for them, and they have the jobs to choose from. Although the demand for all types of finance functions has risen sharply in recent years, you hear one term strikingly often: controllers. It is often wrongly thought that a business controller is a step up the career ladder for a financial controller when it concerns two entirely different functions. What exactly is the difference between a financial controller and a business controller? And what is expected in both roles?


Career development

Career development is directly linked to the goals and objectives set by an individual. It starts with self-actualization and self-assessment of one’s interests and capabilities. The interests are then matched with the available options. 

The individual needs to train himself to acquire the skills needed for the option or career path chosen by him. Finally, after acquiring the desired competency, he has to perform to achieve the goals and targets set by him.
