Competencies & Your Career
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 & 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.
Read the Competency Development Resource Guide 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.
