Career path refers to the series of any combination of work roles, occupations, or jobs that a person moves through by design and coincidence as their career unfolds. This route starts with the first job and continues to encompass the roles throughout the entire career. From the company or industry perspective, a career path is a route that may be taken by workers within a matrix of positions that are connected by increased and new acquisition of skills and knowledge.
