Snakes and Ladders: Stressing the Role of Meta-Competencies for Post-Modern Careers
Lo Presti, Alessandro
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v9 n2 p125-134 Jul 2009
Major global changes during the last decades have influenced the individual's work-life and career. As a result of globalisation, increasing societal complexity and flexibility, careers have lost their linearity and predictability. Traditional models of career development no longer provide a comprehensive explanation for an adequate career development. New theoretical concepts such as protean and boundaryless career attitudes are presented as options to cope with the new situation. In addition, the development of career meta-competencies and skills are introduced as an approach to foster career self-management.
