Book Description

Career Development: A Human Resource Development Perspective second edition offers an integrated framework for career development within the Human Resource function. It goes beyond conventional interventions, providing an interdisciplinary perspective inclusive of occupational psychology and career guidance theory, for an expansive and inclusive understanding of the topic. The authors explore challenges associated with contemporary careers and how a complication of contextual factors, individual attributes, and support mechanisms have and will influence career development.

As with the previous edition, McDonald and Hite bring together the strengths of both theory and practical application, offering an integrated framework for career development. New to this edition are:

  • Fresh cases to support further reflection and problem solving.
  • Supplementary material for each chapter that includes discussion questions and further resources.
  • An enhanced chapter on ethics and social justice.
  • A concluding chapter which explores on-going trends to expand the career development conversation.

This book will help prepare human resource development students, scholars, and practitioners to develop and maintain successful career development programs, and to foster more innovative research that advances the discourse, as well as address their own professional interests.
