"Gaining my Chartership has not only validated my professional experience but also enhanced my career prospects."
I graduated back in 1994 and have worked within the water industry for a number of years. I decided to apply for Chartered Scientist in order to gain recognition of my career progression and professional achievements in addition to my academic achievements. I chose to apply for Chartered status via the Institute of Water, as the Institute of Water felt like the ‘best fit’ for my professional experience as well as being a well-respected institution.
The process of applying for Chartership allowed me to fully evaluate and asses my professional development to date and to understand my future career developmental needs. Gaining my Chartership has not only validated my professional experience but also enhanced my career prospects and helped me recognise my future professional development. It is something I wish I had completed many years ago.
