In organizational development (or OD), the study of career development looks at:

  • how individuals manage their careers within and between organizations and,
  • how organizations structure the career progress of their members, it can also be tied into succession planning within some organizations.

In personal development, career development is:

  • " ... the total constellation of psychological, sociological, educational, physical, economic, and chance factors that combine to influence the nature and significance of work in the total lifespan of any given individual." [1]
  • "... the lifelong psychological and behavioral processes as well as contextual influences shaping one’s career over the life span. As such, career development involves the person’s creation of a career pattern, decision-making style, integration of life roles, values expression, and life-role self concepts." [2]
