Editors: Mark Watson (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa), Mary McMahon (The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia)
Book Description:
This book provides a critical reflection on career development theory and practice and addresses pressing 21st century issues related to globalisation. Career development theory and practice has been described as eurocentric in its focus. In a global world of cultural diversity, complex work and employment issues and, more recently, global recession, such issues warrant careful thought in order to strategically position career development as a relevant discipline in the 21st century. At a more fundamental level, the issue of terminology in relation to work and career needs greater elaboration in a global world. (Imprint: Nova)
