Career Development within HRD: Foundation or Fad?
van Dijk, Marieke S.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, Mar 3-7, 2004) p771-778 (Symp. 36-1)
This article examines the evolving nature of Human Resource Development (HRD) as reflected in changes in one of the component parts often associated with HRD--career development (CD). Recent developments within career development such as a focus on employability, the boundaryless career, and free agent workers are discussed. New directions for career development, including the role of informal learning, integrative life planning, and the focus on systems theory as a link between both fields, lead to the conclusion that CD can and should be a foundation for HRD.
