Career Pathway Survey Summary

In 2018, ICE combined two parallel working groups to create the Career Pathway & Emerging Leaders Task Force. This group was charged with assisting ICE management in identifying how credentialing professionals enter the profession, how these professionals move along their chosen career pathway, how they advance into leadership roles, and what resources ICE could provide to assist their career growth.

The task force’s first priority was to research what a typical career pathway in credentialing might look like. The task force determined that a Career Pathway Survey of ICE members and nonmembers would provide important and informative data to determine whether there is a “typical” career trajectory in the credentialing industry.

This report includes the task force findings from the survey.
