Career development has become important factor in life of everyone. Employers are increasingly
appreciating skills that enable effective teamwork and creative problem solving. An individual is
expected to be open and focused on self-initiative training, knowledge of lifelong learning and
education. Employers demand more and more skills from candidates who do not only relate to an
individual's professional competence within the chosen profession. Future job seekers will need
to know how to adapt effectively to changes in the environment, be able to successfully replace
a job or profession, be able to plan and act in accordance with changing career opportunities,
develop technical and social skills, and at the same time understand how and why the acquired
skills can be used.
