Resource description

Sociologists have long viewed the unfolding of a career as intimately tied to a patterned series of relationships that gradually define a person's sense of self. While empirical findings and conceptual developments indicate a strong link between networks and careers on the one hand, and between career and identity development on the other, little work thus far has examined the reciprocal relationships between networks and identities as they affect and interact with career phenomena over time. In this chapter the authors review what they know to date about how networks affect careers and encourage research that investigates the social processes by which networks and identities co-evolve with career experiences and transitions. They extend the current static treatment of networks and identities, highlighting instead the importance of dynamic conceptions.
