Iskakov E.M. CAREER APPROACH TO PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF OFFICERFormation and developing the professional career of an officer in the Armed Forces requires a high level of education and professional competence of the military. Professionalism largely determines the career growth of a military specialist and his success in career. A properly built professional career makes it possible to increase competitiveness, develop psychological stability, unleash potential, form a set of necessary professional qualities that meet current requirements and development trends of the Armed Forces.
On the basis of a theoretical study of domestic and foreign psychological and pedagogical literature, I found out that mainly officers understand a professional career, mainly as “promotion in military ranks”, “professional growth”, “career advancement”, personal achievements in an officer in a military team. ” Some associate a professional career with the concepts of “prestige” and “status”. At the same time, for the most part, servicemen identify career growth only with the size of the salary for military ranks and their posts, and not with personal growth, self-development, self-improvement, self-actualization, and self-fulfillment in official activities. It is the classic vertical type of construction and career development that prevails in the army. The competitive environment of the male military team forms a steady desire for career advancement among the military personnel.
In my opinion, the most adapted to the processes of military service is the acmeological approach. It combines the search for ways to maximize self-expression in the profession and the best ways to organize professional activities to achieve success in the future.
On the basis of theoretical and methodological approaches, one can formulate one’s own interpretation of the concept of “professional career of an officer”, which I mean the process of planned, in some cases forced change of positions, roles, statuses within the framework of military service, accompanying professional growth, with the aim of moving up the career ladder in personal and (or) official interests.
Key words: professional development, professional “akme”, career, career stages, career approach to professional development.
