panels at conferences and conventions).
APA’s resource breaks down the IDP
process into five steps, with modules
that contain how-to videos, download-able forms, and explanations of how to
identify mentors, develop realistic career
plans and assess progress. The five steps
of the APA IDP Resource are:
■ Assess Yourself: What motivates
you? What are your skills, interests and
■ Explore Careers: Research the myriad
career and job options available, and
what skills, abilities and competencies are
needed to succeed.
■ Compare & Contrast: What is missing
in your experience and training in terms
of skills, abilities and competencies?
■ Set Goals: Make concrete plans to
measure and track your progress.
■ Implement and Revise: Use specific
milestones with clear deadlines and out-
comes to ensure you make progress, and
revise your IDP so it stays current with
your career stage.
