Professional and Career Development Opportunities
This website lists UC Berkeley department/school faculty mentoring programs, principles and best practices for faculty mentoring, and information about other faculty mentoring programs.
The Career Compass tools are designed to transform the staff working environment at Berkeley and to help the campus recruit and retain an engaged, diverse and high-performing work force.
Career development is a self-initiated process with support and resources provided by managers and the organization. Information, tools, and resources are available to help staff employees work through all three stages. This site can be helpful to employees at any stage in their career to enrich their current job or to seek career mobility.
Skill Development means developing yourself and your skill sets to add value for the organization and for your own career development. Fostering an attitude of appreciation for lifelong learning is the key to workplace success. Continuously learning and developing one's skills requires identifying the skills needed for mobility at UC Berkeley, and then successfully seeking out trainings or on-the-job opportunities for developing those skills.
The University is undergoing continuous change and we are in good company; the changing workplace is a global challenge. For employees, this means the need for continuous learning. This site offers information about learning and development opportunities available to Berkeley staff.
The BSA Mentorship Program is a volunteer program, coordinated by the Career Development Committee (CDC), that pairs experienced campus staff members (mentors) with staff who are looking to develop themselves professionally (mentees). Participants have the opportunity to build connections, explore challenges, and better understand the Berkeley organizational culture.
