A career is not just a series of jobs. The National Career Development Association in the USA define it, “a continuous process of lifelong learning, growth, and development.” As a career educator, I work on the premise that career development is the process of “managing learning, work, leisure and transitions to move toward a personally determined and evolving future.” I use a holistic approach with a biopsychological perspective and the principles of adult development and ageing – changes are continuous over the lifespan, and individuality matters. It also goes with Donald Super’s lifecycle and lifespan theory that shows how much time education and career occupy in our lives.
