Make career pathing a central part of each step of the hiring process: 

  • Job listings. Half (52%) of millennials consider opportunities for career development the No. 1 most desirable quality in a company they would consider working for. To attract top talent, job listings should highlight the company’s commitment to tailored professional development. 

  • The interview process. While an interview may not be the place to finalize the details of a career pathing plan, it is an often-overlooked opportunity to get a head start. Focusing a portion of the interview on the skills a candidate is hoping to develop can help a professional development plan take shape before the candidate becomes an employee.

  • Onboarding. The onboarding process is a natural fit for career pathing. When a new employee’s professional goals are a substantial component of onboarding, it centers that employee’s needs and makes them feel valued and invested in. Learn more in our guide, Onboarding Top Talent.
