Abstract

The topic of careers has become both increasingly important and increasingly complex. Contemporary economies have bought about changes in the nature of careers, and uncertainty in the structure and longevity of firms and their ability to offer long-term employment. Corporate policy-makers struggle with alternatives to traditional employment structures, while individuals struggle to decide whether and how they ought to become more independent of such structures, pursuing what some have called 'post-corporate' or 'boundaryless' careers. This volume is an integrated survey of some of the best current thinking and research on careers. Presented as a series of chapters by an international group of experts and knit together through themes and dialogues, it advances our understanding of the deeper meaning of changes in careers, and of the interrelationships and longer-term consequences of those changes.
