Devising a career plan is a very crucial thing when it comes to any individual. There are a large number of theories that have been discussed and bought to light regarding this aspect. But the major of them are the theories that have been given by Donald Super and John Holland. They define how the careers of an individual are made of. These theories are quite different from each other and showcase how each of them thinks for the career of a person.
Donald Super’s Theory: As part his theory, a person needs to realize that while he is designing the plan of his career it is important to release that his dreams, goals and ambitions change over time and hence while planning for career that should be taken into account. There are different phases of an individual’s life which are:
- Growth: This is the starting phase of person’s life from his birth to the age of 14. In this he develops a general understanding of the world, builds his concepts, his attitude and his ideologies and a generic sense for the people and work around in this world.
- Exploration: Then comes the phase of exploration in which a person belongs from 15-24 In this the person tries to develop his tentative choices based on what he sees around and through the lessons that he has learnt from various classes and his hobbies. It gives the person a chance to develop his choices and decide and tentatively frame his career as per his current choices.
