Show Summary Details


Career management is the focus area of careers, which is part of people management, as studied from both individual and organizational perspectives. It can take place within or outside organizational settings. It builds on wide theoretical perspectives, including mostly psychology (particularly industrial psychology), social psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, history, and geography. Career management is usually being taught and researched through human resource management (HRM) lenses, and there is a certain overlap with general HRM issues, particularly in training and development. Other areas of overlap listed in this article are international HRM (in particular, management of people across borders) and diversity management—or those practices falling within the career area, such as mentoring.
