Career planning and awareness

Traditionally, one role of Higher Education has been to supply the labour market with appropriately educated and skilled graduates. However, the market has become increasingly competitive and there are concerns that the growing number of highly qualified graduates is not met by an increased demand for these skill levels. Consequently, there is a growing need for students to become aware of relevant labour market developments and take ownership of their future career. The book outlines one study investigating the extent to which undergraduate students are aware of the skills sought by graduate employers and use the available career service facilities. The research also addresses whether career planning and awareness are influenced by the year of study or the type of degree (generalised or specialised). The work helps to determine whether students prepared for the graduate labour market. The book is of particular relevance to those with an interest in career planning and employability.

Labour-Market Flexibility and Individual Careers
139,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With labour markets across the world and even in social democratic Europe in a state of unprecedented flux, this exhaustive study addresses the problem of how to balance job market demands, personal career interests and private life becomes a central issue for millions of employees. So how do modern work and employment arrangements restructure individual careers and what is required of individuals in order to manage career transitions successfully over time? This is one of very few in-depth empirical studies to analyze how labour market trends, organisational change and the subjective work orientations of individuals interact.The author’s detailed assessment is based on a comparison of the structural contexts, work orientations and employment histories of nurses and ICT technicians in Germany and the UK. These two core service occupations, as well as the national contexts of the two European nations, have quite different working environments and vocational traditions. Nursing is an institutionalized semi-profession with clear criteria of qualification and career continuity, while information and communication technology (ICT) is a new, evolving field with varied skill backgrounds and high job mobility.To arrive at an understanding of how individual career trajectories are changing, this book closely examines the interplay of labour market demands, employees’ work and career orientations and the development of their skills. It records the ways in which employees adapt to increased labour market flexibility, which, on the one hand, induces discontinuities of careers, employment and work, and on the other, generates new skill requirements and learning expectations, as well as unforeseen opportunities.

Job Quality and Employer Behaviour
141,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book takes a fresh look at the issue of job quality, analyzing employer behaviour and discussing the agenda for policy intervention. Between 1997 and 2002, more than twelve million new jobs were created in the European Union and labour market participation increased by more than eight million. Whilst a good deal of these new jobs have been created in high-tech and/or knowledge-intensive sectors providing workers with decent pay, job security, training and career development prospects, a significant share of jobs, particularly in labour-intensive service sector industries fail to do so. This volume provides new perspectives on this highly debated and policy relevant issue.

Becoming a learning coach in academic settings
79,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book highlights the fact that personal development initiatives generated by the modern competitive labour market need to focus on individual knowledge, experience, growth and achievement of work-related objectives in workplaces for both the individual and the institution. This can be better achieved, not through simulating a working environment such as most accredited training organisations offer, but through well-defined in-service tasks that take into account the clear career progression needs of the individual. This would allow people to set up specific and measurable learning outcomes, in order to acquire skills that allow them to adapt to their job functions for a better individual or collective performance. It explores ways of developing coaching skills in academic settings, not through accredited training courses, but rather by following the self-directed learning route that is informed by continuing personal and professional development activities, action research for improvement, reflective practice and collaborative learning for quality enhancement.

Regulating the Risk of Unemployment
99,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Regulating the Risk of Unemployment offers a systematic comparative analysis of the recent adaptation of European unemployment protection systems to increasingly post-industrial labour markets. These systems were mainly designed and institutionalized in predominantly industrial economies, characterized by relatively standardized employment relationships and stable career patterns, as well as plentiful employment opportunities even for those with low skills. Over the past two to three decades they have faced the challenge of an accelerating shift to a primarily service-based economy, accompanied by demands for greater flexibility in wages and terms and conditions in low-skill segments of the labour market as well as pressures to maximise labour force participation given the more limited potential for productivity-led growth. The book develops an original framework for analysing adaptive reform in unemployment protection along three discrete dimensions of institutional change, which are termed benefit homogenization, risk re-categorization, and activation. This framework is then used to structure analysis of twenty years of unemployment protection reform in twelve European countries. In addition to mapping reforms along these dimensions, the country studies analyse the political and institutional factors that have shaped national patterns of adaptation. Complementary comparative analyses explore the effects of benefit reforms on the operation of the labour market, assess evolving patterns of working-age benefit dependency, and examine the changing role of active labour market policies in the regulation of the risk of unemployment.
