The Phenomenology of a Stalled Career: When an Organizational Undiscussable and Deficient Support Systems Impedes Sensemaking and Work Transition
Kormanik, Martin B.
Online Submission
Conditions in the U.S. have created a situation where some middle aged white males are experiencing a stalled career; they perceive they have plateaued in career progression while at the same time women and minority peers continue advancing. Based on phenomenological research methods, individuals who have experienced the non-event work transition of a stalled career describe their experience. Transitions theory is the theoretical framework for analysis. Discussion includes implications for theory and practice. (Contains 1 figure.)
