Overview

With more than 400 articles in A-to-Z format, the Encyclopedia of Career Development, originally published in print format in 2006, is the premier reference tool for research on career-related topics. Covering a broad range of themes, the contributions to these two volumes represent original material written by leading researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the field of career development. This multidisciplinary resource examines career-related issues from psychological, sociological, educational, counseling, organizational behavior, and human resource management perspectives.

Key features include:

  • Offers introductory materials prepared by the editors and supplementary appendices on select topics
  • Incorporates global, cultural, and international dimensions of careers and examines the social context of careers such as the contemporary work environment, emerging values in society, gender and ethnicity, social class, and work-family interface
  • Explores the evolution of careers including career stages, patterns, and transitions, as well as variations in the meaning of career success
  • Discusses career decision-making strategies, and looks at legislative, regulatory, and labor relation decrees that influence career development and decision making
  • Analyzes initiatives used by employers, counselors, and society to promote the effective development of careers

The Encyclopedia of Career Development is a must-have reference for all academic and public libraries. In addition, corporations and career centers will also want to add this valuable set to their collections.
