    How can we encourage your professional development?

      How to Answer

      Professional development opportunities can present themselves in the form of courses, workshops, gaining new credentials, collaboration with your superiors, or attending industry-related conferences. These opportunities help you to improve your job performance and can often lead to higher duties and responsibilities. The interviewer would like to know what type of professional development activities you value the most. Discuss what you want to learn in this role, and where you would like to see these opportunities take you in your career.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I value the opportunity to grow in my education and industry-based knowledge. For this reason, the best ways to encourage my professional development could be to offer continuing education, meaningful coursework, or even tuition reimbursement opportunities based on my work performance. I appreciate that your company values growth and development, and I am eager to improve my work performance here."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I appreciate the fact that your company encourages professional development. I am eager to learn and grow through a steady increase in duties and responsibilities. I also value skills-based training opportunities that are followed up with related job assignments, which allow me to apply my new skills immediately."
