9 Section 1: What is Career Development and Why is it Important to Build a Comprehensive K-12 System?

10 Career Development Definition and Rationale Career Development is a continuous lifelong process of developmental experiences that focuses on seeking, obtaining and processing information about self, occupational and educational alternatives, life styles and role options (Hansen, 1976). Put another way, career development is the process through which people come to understand themselves as they relate to the world of work and their role in it. The Career Development process is where an individual fashions a work identity. In America, we are what we do, thus it becomes a persons identity. It is imperative when educating our young people that our school systems assist and consider the significance of this responsibility for our youth and their future. The influences on and outcomes of career development are one aspect of socialization as part of a broader process of human development.
