Career theory: A partner in practice
What is career theory? Does theory matter? Is career theory useful in practice? Well, the answer is yes; career theory does matter and it is useful. Career theories are basically different perspectives on career development and any career theory textbook will show just
how many perspectives there are. Career theory distinguishes the field of career development from other fields and provides a foundation for practice. Knowledge of career theory is fundamental to professionalism and is a core competency of professional standards in many
countries including Australia. This interactive presentation overviews career theory and considers its practical application.
