Professional advancement and building a successful loss prevention career can mean many things to many different people. For some individuals it may mean reaching a top leadership position at a particular company, perhaps serving as a director or vice president of loss prevention/asset protection. For others, it may involve gaining experience in multiple professional fields in order to establish a unique and versatile role that capitalizes on all of our various skill sets. Some aspire to be the very best at a particular skill or discipline, building a base of knowledge and expertise that sets us apart from the rest. There are those that strive to leave a professional legacy, leaving a lasting mark on the present and future of the loss prevention industry. And there are still others that simply want the recognition that comes with reaching a particular level of performance and the security that it provides.
There are many different ways to evaluate our career vision and professional aspirations. But what is most important is that we find the path that fits us best. We need to fashion and follow a professional development plan that leads us forward and builds our future. Especially when involved in a profession that is evolving as quickly as retail loss prevention, career growth is essential to professional survival. Whatever our professional goals and aspirations might be; whatever skills and experiences have helped forge our personal loss prevention career path, we have to find and seize the opportunities to learn, grow, and progress.
