More About This Textbook


This book presents a kaleidoscopic view of the concept of career, reviewing its past and considering its future. International specialists in psychology, sociology, counseling, education, and human resource management offer a multilayered examination of career theories and practices. They identify the major changes taking place in the world of work that are challenging and extending the meaning of the word career. The overall aim is to offer a meaningful redefinition that is relevant to the newly emerging network society of the twenty-first century.
