Professional Development

Let us help you go far

You want to succeed in your career. We want to help. At Aetna, you’ll find plenty of professional development options to expand your current skills, gain new skills and try new things.

Development planning

You’ll work with your manager to plan goals, actions and deadlines. And you’ll meet regularly to discuss your progress and make updates.

Job assignments

Working on projects in other areas within the company is a great way to grow. We encourage you to take assignments that will enhance skills or build new ones. After all, this on-the-job training benefits both you and the company!


Your manager will offer feedback on your work to help you perform well.


Mentoring can help people reach their career goals. You can find a mentor and learn under his or her guidance, or you can become a mentor to share your skills. Career mentors often learn as much as their mentees (yes, that’s really a word).

Formal training

Aetna offers many training options for building or strengthening skills. Get training on the job, in a classroom or online.

Tuition assistance

Financial assistance is available to eligible employees. We offer tuition assistance to employees enrolled in a formal degree program, or taking job-related courses.
