Conlon, Thomas J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, Mar 3-7, 2004) p779-786 (Symp. 36-2)
Career development theories have focused on the human lifespan, traits, vocational choice, assessment tools, values and self-understanding to guide adults in their career decisions. However, many of these early theories have questionable value in today's diverse workforce and where business practices have changed to reflect emerging economic competitiveness in a global economy. This paper reviews literature on career development and contemporary business trends. Career development implications and research questions for the 21st century workplace are identified.
