About Career Conversations

Career Conversations empower staff members to review their accomplishments, identify their strengths, and set goals for the future. Through this process, staff members are enabled to create a plan for their own growth and development. With the input and support of their supervisors, staff members can chart a path to success and achieve their career aspirations.

Please contact your unit or department to clarify how Career Conversations fits into your current career planning processes. For instance, University faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate assistants/associates may use separate review processes.

For assistance with Career Conversations, contact your Senior HR Partner.
