Career management is a combination of structured planning and the active management choice of one’s own professional career. Career management was first defined in a social work doctoral thesis by Mary Valentich as the implementation of a career strategy through the application of career tactics in relation to chosen career orientation.
Career orientation referred to the overall design or pattern of one’s career, shaped by goals and interests and identifiable by particular positions that embody these goals and interests. Career strategy pertains to the individual’s general approach to realizing career goals and the specificity of the goals themselves.
This module will develop the learner’s understandings, knowledge, actions, and skills for career management.
