What is the Career Advisor Program?

Who are Career Advisors?
Career Advisors are trained internal PNC resources who provide personalized consultation on learning and development, career planning and options, and talent tool navigation. They provide support, guidance, resources and tools to help you “own your career,” in alignment with our Talent-Focused Culture.
Why should I work with a Career Advisor?
By contacting an Advisor, you can receive one-on-one consultation around important career-related growth and development topics.
What are the benefits?
Receiving assistance to best navigate our systems and better understand the tools to help further your career can improve your workplace engagement and satisfaction.
How do I contact a Career Advisor?
You can submit the Career Advisor Online Intake Form in Pathfinder.
What if I don’t understand the competencies for my current role? Can a Career Advisor help?
Competencies are the knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to do a job. They allow you and your manager to focus on what is critical for you to be successful in your role. A Career Advisor can help you understand those expectations. You can also learn more about competencies by taking the Competencies@PNC course in iLearn.
Is the completion of a Competency Assessment required prior to seeking Career Advisor services?
No. However, you may be asked to do so if you have not yet had the opportunity to complete an Assessment. If you completed the assessment more than six months ago, you can also consider taking a refresher. A current Competency Assessment will help identify development opportunities and facilitate ongoing dialogue.
Are conversations with my Career Advisor confidential?
You are strongly encouraged to engage your manager in the advising process. The sharing of information, while optional, can be an effective vehicle in ongoing development conversations between you and your manager. You can both participate in a call with your Advisor or your Advisor can send a copy of your summary to your manager, upon request, with your approval.
Are we required to use the Career Advisor Program?
No. This service is completely optional.
Where do I find my Development Plan?
Your Development Plan can be found within your Career section in Workday under Development Items. We also recommend that you reference the Performance & Development Toolkit for Employees.
FAQS FOR MANAGERS
FAQs For Managers
What is my role, as a manager, in relation to the Career Advisor Program?
You should support your employee’s decision to engage with an Advisor. This can be done by working with your employee both before and after the initial call, potentially attending a joint call at the employee’s request, and following up on next steps and Advisor recommendations. Dialogue should continue as part of ongoing, two-way conversations between you and your employee.
If my employee is using the Career Advisor Program, am I no longer responsible for that employee‘s development?
As a manager, you remain the key resource accountable for the growth and development of each of your employees. You should continue to have regular development conversations with your employee and build upon the outcomes of the Career Advisor Program.
Will I know if my employees have used/are using the Career Advisor Program?
Employees will be strongly encouraged to notify you that they are receiving services, however, this is optional. If they consent to you being notified, a summary will be forwarded.
What should I do after my employee speaks with a Career Advisor?
If you are informed and copied on the call summary, any recommended next steps should become part of the ongoing dialogue between you and your employee.
