Career Development. Symposium 34. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
Three presentations are provided from Symposium 34, Career Development, of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD) 2000 Conference Proceedings. "Emerging Career Development Needs as Reported by Adult Students at Four Ohio Institutions of Higher Education: A Qualitative Study" (Kathryn S. Hoff) reports 4 major themes emerged from interviews with 10 adult students: need for self-awareness, occupational knowledge requirements, need for decision-making strategies, and challenges to career implementation. It presents a Web of Personal Career Reality developed as a descriptive model of the adult career development process. "Mid-Life Mid-Career Renewal--An Outcome of Involuntary Career Transition as Experienced by Federal Employees" (Sara Ervin Walser, Neal Chalofsky) reviews a study that confirms existence of a mid-career renewal stage, triggered by an involuntary career transition and affected by factors related to the inner self, personal and work environment, and transition process. "The Role of Acculturation in Career Advancement among Hispanic Corporate Managers" (Lizette Zuniga, Cindy Skaruppa, Toni Powell) compares Mendoza's (1989) theory of acculturation to the propositions derived from the investigation into the role of acculturation. It reveals that Hispanic corporate managers viewed acculturation and career advancement as directly related to each other and substantiates Mendoza's theory. The papers contain reference sections.
