From Career Decision-Making to Career Management: It's All about Lifelong Learning.
Jarvis, Phil; Zielke, Jessi; Cartright, Charlsey
Most adults end up in their work roles through less than fully informed and too-often unintentional career decision-making. The economic and social consequences for individuals, their communities and the national economy are profound. By using what is known about career development and learning, career development professionals can dramatically improve the career planning and management process, lifelong for the individuals they serve. When the outcomes of quality career management interventions are expressed in terms of measurable impacts on personal, community, economic, and workforce development, the author asserts that career practitioners can capture the attention of legislators, policymakers and administrators, can gain more support for career management programs and services that can provide evidence of their success in these terms.
