What is the typical career path for your occupation?

What will you be doing in five, ten or fifteen years' time?  In many professions, typical career progression involves moving from doing a job to managing other people doing the job.

Why should you conduct regular reviews of your career progression?
Joseph has three years' experience as a teacher and very much enjoys practical teaching in the classroom.
