Career Development

  • Developmental approach: Specific vocational development tasks are accomplished at each life stage. During the Growth stage, birth to age 14 years, these tasks include forming a picture of the kind of person one is, developing an orientation to the world of work, and acquiring an understanding of the meaning of work.

  • People they know and admire
