International Career Development Trends. Trends and Issues Alert.
Kerka, Sandra
Career development has taken on global significance as individuals prepare for work that increasingly crosses borders. Internationally, individuals and career practitioners helping them are grappling with such issues as development of cultural competencies for cross-cultural work. Issues vary in different sociopolitical contexts. As Eastern Europe and China move to more Western-style economies, new ways of school-to-work transitions are sought. One research focus is cross-cultural applicability of career development theories, models, and instruments. Women's successful career development varies across nations, although impact of family on women's careers remains a universal theme. International collaborations have resulted in a career development facilitators' curriculum, transnational career theory, and a website for the professional development of career development specialists. Common concerns include the ethical, equity, and quality issues of career development on the Internet; a need for current, accessible labor market information; and stronger links between education and employment and between the career development field and policymakers. The major portion of this publication consists of an annotated bibliography of 27 items and a list of 4 websites. (YLB)
