The focus of this definition of career is on the course or path (career path) that a person takes within a certain field of work; i.e., emphasizing job-related undertakings. The definition of career transition suggests that a person can have more than one work career. For example, a person can abandon one field of endeavor and move on to another. Such a career progression is different from that which occurs within a single career field.

The term job creation is applicable to the type of enterprise development; that leads to economic development. It's problematic for workers who don't understand or accept career transition preparedness in a world of market and technological changes which forces enterprises to do away with jobs that are no longer productive. Just as enterprise developers deal with change, so must job holders do the same. The practical approach for the job holder is to anticipate and accept the possibility that career transition will be necessary.

The definition of economic development practitioner provides an example of a career related to the combined processes this glossary is focused on serving.

career field

WikiHow.com has an article titled How to Decide on a Career Field in which a nine-item guide states that a career field (aka field of work) . . . is far more than a single job. It is an area in which many jobs or trades are possible (source of quote).

An institution of higher learning in Fedonia, NY states that a career is . . . defined as a person's progress within an occupation or series of occupations. However, a career is more than just a job, or working, or your occupation. It also includes your progress through life, your growth and development in vocational and avocational areas of life (source of quote).
