Career Progression Lattices

The need to increase earnings is a major driver for most career changers, especially in the face of changes in family composition. Individuals with families working in entry-level jobs are most in need of embarking on a career progression that will allow them to support their family situation. A career progression lattice can help an individual highlight education and skill gaps and provides a concrete vision around which to discuss how to address these gaps and move forward in one's career. Simply put, a career lattice lets you see where you are now, what opportunities lay before you, and what it takes to get there.
