Mold, Mould, Mole-d: The Three M's of Career Development
Amundson, Norman E.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v45 n4 p168 Dec 2008
The author explores a creative idea development process wherein one begins by applying the image of "breaking the mold" to career development and then extending the process further by considering other related images. In this article, the related images include synonyms for mold such as mould and mole-d (the mole is a small burrowing animal with limited vision). Together, these images reflect current career development issues, such as the need for flexibility, health, and vision (sight and insight). These concepts have both practical and theoretical relevance for employment counselors.
