Typical career growth and success is mostly solely measured in accordance to how far one gets on the corporate ladder. However, in the technical arena there are other several paths leading to a successful career. Having no interest in leading a team is not necessarily a blockage to enhance one’s career neither does it mean that one should forcefully lift him/herself in this path. Moving up is not the only option to get ahead. On this panel, various ways to continuously evolve on one’s profession with focus on the technical engineering fields will be discussed.
