Women's careers have been a topic of research and discussion in many disciplines including sociology, business, industrial, organisational and vocational psychology, and career guidance. Despite the introduction of equal employment legislation in many countries, women’s patterns of career development continue to reflect structural labour market disadvantage. This unique book brings together expert contributions from academic researchers, as well as representing the voices of older women who participated in an international research investigation. Grounded in multidisciplinary empirical studies, the book provides: • a variety of perspectives on women's careers in the 21st century • an international exploration of the voice of the older woman • an understanding of both the challenges and responses to women as they construct their careers. Offering a comprehensive understanding of women’s career development throughout the lifespan, this book will be of key interest to academics and researchers from the fields of education, psychology, management, geography, labour market economics and sociology, as well as career practitioners, managers, trainers, researchers and policy developers.

This edited collection explores ways in which social justice can be integrated into career guidance practice. Chapter authors propose models and practices which can contribute to struggles for social justice and consider how career guidance can play a role in these struggles. They explore policy and practice in the light of critical social theory both critiquing career guidance and opening up new possibilities for the field. The volume moves the discipline away from its overwhelming reliance on psychology in favor of theoretically pluralistic approaches informed by critical thinking in a range of disciplines. It seeks to expand the possibilities that are available to career guidance practitioners and researchers to support the growth of human flourishing and solidarity.

Seit geraumer Zeit wird in der Öffentlichkeit sowie in der Wissenschaft über die Karriereverläufe von Führungskräften diskutiert. Mit den hohen Flexibilitätsanforderungen im Karriereverlauf werden z.B. Vorstands- und Managervergütungen in der Gesellschaft gerechtfertigt. Eingebettet in diese Diskussion betrachtet diese Arbeit anhand der Daten des Sozio-oekonomischen Panels berufliche Verläufe deutscher Führungskräfte (N = 171; 20 Beobachtungsjahre 1994-2013) und untersucht ihre Ursachen sowie objektive als auch subjektive Karriereoutcomes. Mithilfe der Sequenzmusteranalyse konnten neben der (1) traditionellen Karriere und (2) boundaryless career folgende Muster abgeleitet werden: (3) die Abstiegskarriere, (4) die Karriere mit unfreiwilligen, jedoch erfolgreichen Wechseln, (5) die turbulente Karriere und (6) die Stagnation. Innerbetriebliche Karriereverläufe sind bei knapp der Hälfte der Untersuchten vorzufinden und spielen weiterhin eine bedeutende Rolle. Die externen Bewegungen sind recht heterogen verteilt: So gibt es Karrieren, die nur wenige externe Wechsel aufweisen, und einige, die sehr sprunghaft sind. Bezüglich der Ursachen dieser Karrieremuster ist von einem komplexen Zusammenspiel unterschiedlicher Einflussfaktoren zu berichten. Mit Blick auf die Gehaltsentwicklung zeigen sich in allen Mustern, bis auf die Abstiegskarriere, positive Trends. Werden die subjektiven Aspekte in die Betrachtung miteinbezogen, zeigen sich eher ein relativer Rückgang der Arbeitszufriedenheit bei innerbetrieblichen Karriereverläufen sowie ein Aufwärtstrend in der 'boundaryless career' und in Karrieren mit unfreiwilligen Wechseln. Aleksandra Endemann, Jg. 1980, studierte Soziologie an der Nikolaus-Kopernikus-Universität in Torun (Polen) sowie Human Resource Management an der Universität Hamburg. Sie ist wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin an der Professur für BWL, insbesondere Personalwirtschaft an der Universität Hamburg (Prof. Dr. Florian Schramm).

This book is focused on work, occupation and career development: themes that are fundamental to a wide range of human activities and relevant across all cultures. Yet theorizing and model building about this most ubiquitous of human activities from international perspectives have not been vigorous. An examination of the literature pertaining to career development, counseling and guidance that has developed over the last fifty years reveals theorizing and model building have been largely dominated by Western epistemologies, some of the largest workforces in the world are in the developing world. Career guidance is rapidly emerging as a strongly felt need in these contexts. If more relevant models are to be developed, frameworks from other cultures and economies must be recognized as providing constructs that would offer a deeper understanding of career development. This does not mean that existing ideas are to be discarded. Instead, an integrative approach that blends universal principles with particular needs could offer a framework for theorizing, research and practice that has wider relevance. The central objective of this handbook is to draw the wisdom and experiences of different cultures together to consider both universal and specific principles for career guidance and counseling that are socially and economically relevant to contemporary challenges and issues. This book is focused on extending existing concepts to broader contexts as well as introducing new concepts relevant to the discipline of career guidance and counseling.
