The books five parts cover (1) major theoretical and methodological debates and approaches to studying careers; (2) careers as dynamic, ongoing processes covering such issues as time, shaping careers, career outcomes and patterns, and the forces shaping careers; (3) the local, national, and global context of careers, (4) implementing career research to design practical interventions in areas such as education, counselling, and national policy; and (5) a commentary on the current state of career scholarship and its future development as represented in this volume, by foundingscholars in the field. This book will be a sourcebook for scholars studying careers, research students intending to take up the study of careers, and anyone - scholars and practitioners - with an interest not only in understanding careers, the factors shaping them and where they lead, but also in how this understanding might be used in practice"--
