The Interdependent Family-Centric Career: Career Perspective of the Overseas Chinese in Indonesia
Pekerti, Andre A.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n4 p362-377 Jun 2008
This theoretical article presents an interdisciplinary approach to extend the scope of current career theories and their application to the overseas Chinese (OC) in Indonesia. Using an ecological model to analyze culture and an emic perspective, the article discusses several factors that affect careers of OC Indonesians. Factors such as culture, discrimination, subjective careers, Confucian values, and family business structure are discussed as variables that create a bounded career perspective. This conceptual view is used as a foundation to discuss the needs for future research and the development of a cross-cultural career model that is applicable in bounded career environments.
