Uncle Jack, what's about "grow your career"? Is this still disliked? Is "develop your career" better?This use of "grow" as a transitive verb is still disliked in ordinary BrE. We are happy to grow carrots, but we don't like growing businesses or economies, although this use of "grow" is widely used in business English.
I think so. It is often hard to tell when business English becomes acceptable in other situations. A business might well say that they will be able to "grow your career" in a job advertisement, and a writer of business books might use the term as your source has done, and I suppose that some readers might like this usage, but it still sounds odd to me. "Develop" is fine.Uncle Jack, what's about "grow your career"? Is this still disliked?
