Career decision-making


The process of making a choice between particular career alternatives.


This definition does not set out to describe the nature of the process (e.g. rational, logical, etc) by which a career decision has been made or what aspects (e.g. individual, job characteristics, etc) have been considered. An alternative definition of career decision that emphasises these elements is:
• The choice of a particular option as the result of a logical series of steps used to identify and match individual aims and organisational development/labour market needs (Career Guidance and Counselling Glossary).
