- ABSTRACT: It has not been simple to arrive at a universally acceptable scientific definition of career. Nevertheless, definitions revolve around the notion of sequential employment-related experiences through time and across space. Despite difficulties with its definition, career is a salient element in each person’s working life and demands planning and management from both individuals and organizations. In this chapter, we focus on current career issues, with particular emphasis on the changing nature of careers and with a specific focus on the elements of time and space in their evolvement. We discuss new forms of employment and their impact on careers, the notion of career success and perspectives to approach it, as well as careers in the present era of globalization. We use the term career actor to denote the individual as an active accumulator of experiences that compose a career.
