Linear and Nonlinear Career Models: Metaphors, Paradigms, and Ideologies.
Buzzanell, Patrice M.; Goldzwig, Steven R.
Management Communication Quarterly, v4 n4 p466-505 May 1991
Examines the linear or bureaucratic career models (dominant in career research, metaphors, paradigms, and ideologies) which maintain career myths of flexibility and individualized routes to success in organizations incapable of offering such versatility. Describes nonlinear career models which offer suggestive metaphors for re-visioning careers and the promise of personalized definitions of success, control, and growth. (SR)
