Career Development and career guidance

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    Since the publication of the first edition of this handbook (Drenth, Thierry, Willems, & De Wolff, 1984), career development, career planning and career guidance have become part and parcel of personnel work in organizations. The career of individual employees now forms an integrating theme in personnel procedures employed at present (Gutteridge, Leibowitz, & Shore, 1993). Progress has also been made in scientific terms. This is particularly apparent in the extension of familiar theoretical paths, such as those of Super (1957), Super, Starishevsky, Matlin, and Jordaan (1963), Holland (1985a), Dawis and Lofquist (1984, 1993), Crites (1981) and Osipow (1983). Arthur, Hall, and Lawrence (1989) and Montross and Shinkman (1992) provide a summary of this.
