Competencies and your career
Last updated: November 30, 2021
Behavioural competencies describe the behaviours, attributes, traits and motives that you demonstrate when doing a job—they enable you to do your job well.
Competencies can be useful throughout your career with the BC Public Service to help with situations, such as:
- Preparing for interviews and career changes
- Identifying work and learning goals
- Developing new strengths and skills for higher performance
Competencies and MyPerformance
Competencies are just one aspect of MyPerformance.
Start a conversation with your supervisor about:
- Identifying the competencies that will support your success for the year
- Incorporating the identified competencies into your work goals
- Creating a learning goal in your MyPerformance Profile to develop a particular competency
- Understanding how to increase your competency levels through training and informal learning opportunities
- Review the competency development resource guide included in each staff competency description for learning ideas
- How exploring the competencies for different positions will help you reach your career goals
- How you demonstrated the identified competencies throughout the year
Use the MyPerformance Profile tool to record the highlights of those conversations.
