Appeared in Choice on 1989-02:
This collection of original essays, written by experienced human resource professionals, is a major contribution to the maturing field of organizational career planning and development. Collectively, the contributors stress the need to integrate employee career interests with the current and anticipated personnel requirements of their employers, and they describe a variety of strategies and programs for accomplishing this objective. Divided into five parts, the book commences with a discussion of the social and psychological experiences individuals encounter during the course of their career. Papers in Part 2 describe successful organizational strategies for enhancing employee career development. The third section focuses on specific tools, techniques, and programs usually included in a comprehensive organization career system. Part 4 highlights the career experiences of particular target groups such as women, minorities, senior executives, and outplacement survivors. The final chapter considers the role human resource professionals will need to play in career development for the future. The editors (management professionals, AT&T) have published on this topic previously. Most contributions have chapter-end references. Career development specialists, personnel managers, human resource planners, and students of the career development field will find this book to be of considerable interest. -T. Gutteridge, Southern Illinois University--Carbondale

Long Description
Since its rise to prominence nearly twenty years ago, the field of career planning and development has undergone significant change. From an emphasis on the individual's personal needs, the focus in recent years has shifted to a concern for the individual's needs in relation to an organization's current and future position. This collection of original essays reflects this new trend. Written by experienced human resources specialists, the essays present current issues and problems, together with effective programs and strategies for dealing with them. Divided into five parts, this book begins with a focus on career processes in early, middle, and late stages--such as newcomer commitment, exploring career alternatives, and career "plateaus." The chapters go on to describe organizational strategies for career enhancement and corporate philosophies of employee development, as well as tools, techniques, and programs for individual employee self-assessment. Examples of work experiences are examined, highlighting opportunities and barriers for minorities and women, executive development, and the impact of job loss. A final chapter is devoted to the role of human resource professionals in career development for the future.
