The primary purpose of Issues in Career Development is to provide a broad look at the field of career development
including career counseling, career guidance, career education, and general career development programming, and to examine
some of the field's major themes, approaches, and assumptions. We will examine both knowledge from the past as well as
what the future might bring. We will bring together a variety of experts/authors from the area of interest and try to provide
readers with a framework for action based on the best available research information.
The concept of career development is in a period of dramatic transition resulting from equally dramatic changes in the labor market
and the socio-cultural environment. Work has a different meaning today than it had one hundred, fifty, or even ten years ago. Career is
now much more tightly interwoven with life, and lifestyle. In that context, career development can only be understood when viewed as a part
of the broader concept of human development. Past research clearly indicates that interventions can and do have a significant impact on a
variety of career development areas (e.g. job satisfaction, worker productivity), however, there are significant questions that are yet to be
answered, and given the changing career/work landscape, significant questions that are not yet known. Particular areas of interest for the
future relate to the changing nature of the labor market, gender and minority group issues, socio-economic trends, etc. Historically, much of
the research on career development has assumed that psychological factors play the major role in a person's career choices. However, it is
becoming increasingly clear that the environment plays a much bigger role than previously assumed. This monograph series will examine
these and other relevant issues in the years to come.
