Ca­reer pro­gres­sion can mean go­ing up the lad­der of po­si­tions in the same li­brary or mov­ing to an­other po­si­tion in the same li­brary or to an­other li­brary with or with­out an ini­tial in­crease in pay. A ca­reer plan, ac­com­pa­nied by hard work, com­mit­ment, loy­alty, flex­i­bil­ity to change, and con­tin­u­ing pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to reach one’s goal, among oth­ers, will en­able a li­brar­ian to progress and seize op­por­tu­ni­ties for ad­vance­ment when they arise. This im­plies that the li­brar­ian must have am­bi­tion and di­rec­tion cou­pled with achieve­ment and qual­i­fi­ca­tions needed by the po­si­tion he/she aims for. In the Philip­pines, qual­i­fi­ca­tions are de­fined along­side the Philip­pine Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Frame­work, the li­cen­sure ex­am­i­na­tion, the IRR, and the Op­er­a­tional Guide­lines for Con­tin­u­ing Pro­fes­sional Devel­op­ment and the Na­tional Com­pe­tency-Based Stan­dards for Filipino Li­brar­i­ans. Key­words: ca­reer pro­gres­sion; ca­reer devel­op­ment; li­brar­i­ans
