Author: Arulmani, Gideon


This paper examines the impact of occupational pride and prejudice on the emergence of varying orientations to work, career and livelihoods and the implications this has for careers research and the practice of career counselling in a rapidly globalising world. [The author] considers key issues to understanding barriers to inclusion, including the mindsets, attitudes and beliefs prevalent within cultures that differentially influence career choice.
