Understanding Careers

In the hotly anticipated second edition of Understanding Careers, Kerr Inkson has teamed up with Nicky Dries and John Arnold to take readers on a fascinating journey through the field of Career Studies.

Interdisciplinary - the text brings together and critiques a range of perspectives, allowing for a broader and more holistic understanding of the field.
Theory and practice - comprehensive coverage of all the key theories and cutting edge research is related to the real world through over 50 cases studies. A new 'Careers in Practice' section contains chapters devoted to self-development, career counselling, and organizational practices.
International perspective - contains examples, cases, research, references and statistics from a range of countries.
Use of metaphor - the text is structured around commonly used metaphors for careers, helping students relate to the ideas presented and providing a framework for analysis and comparison.

Ideal reading for students considering their own career and personal development, as well as those studying career development, career guidance or human resource management within a psychology, education, counselling or business degree.
