The articles in this major work have been masterfully selected by the set's esteemed editors for their exceptional impact and influence, as well as to demonstrate the range of disciplinary perspectives that have been used as different lenses to understand the concept of "career." It includes material on both "vocational" and "organizational" career studies; a true touchstone text for any scholar interested in expanding their knowledge of this far-reaching field. The set is organised around four central themes: Volume One: Foundations of Career Studies: taking a look at historical material on the development of career studies within different disciplines Volume Two: Careers in Context: considering careers in relation to their surrounding social structures Volume Three: Careers as Human Experience: attending to careers at the individual level Volume Four: Careers in Practice; bringing together the practical implications of career studies for all groups of practitioners
