Sample text

In economies that came under the influence of the Industrial Revolution and the Reformation, the nature of work was no longer typified by a specific set of activities that one engaged in for a lifetime, in order to earn a living. Work now presented prospects for change and advancement. People began to approach work as a means for achieving growth and personal development, as also for changing their class or position in society. Thus was born the concept of career, which tends in a Western context to be described as a personal engagement with the world of work characterized by the exercise of volition and the identification of personal suitability, requiring preparation and specialization for ongoing, lifelong development.

Arulmani et al. development processes are described for persons who are located in traditionally important life periods such as adolescence and early adulthood, as well as for those who are negotiating challenges later in adulthood. There is clearly an emphasis on the contexts that define lifelong development. Bakshi opens this section by reminding us that the person is central to all forms of career guidance activity. She discusses two constructs of focal interest to career guidance and counseling—personality and self—and describes the key dialogues in the indigenous Western literature as well as indigenous Indian literature.
