Abstract

A career is a life-long process, that includes the preparation for, and choice of an occupation. One's present job is just one of a sequence of work experiences encompassed by a career. It has often been seen that employees who occupy similar positions in an organizations may have completely different interests, goals and job expectations. Research in sociology, clinical psychology and vocational psychology suggests that people go through life stages and career stages that affect their job attitudes, work perceptions and performance.
