Abstract

Despite various efforts made to conceptualise career success, there remains a dearth of literature on the early indicators particularly of undergraduates in the transitory process of university to the world of work. The paper argues that early career success is laid at the doors of university given that employability lies at the heart of university policies. The issues associated with conceptualising early career success will be discussed. Arguments are put forward for an all-encompassing conception of career success for undergraduates that recognises the duality of using objective and subjective aspects. The paper therefore fills a gap in the literature and studies on career success and employability by defining career success in a way that is meaningful to undergraduates and discusses implications for future researchers and educational policy-makers.

Item Type: Working Paper
Additional Information: The conceptual paper is the first draft on the foundations and conceptualisation of career success for undergraduates. It is a work in progress and based on my recent PhD study. I aim to develop this paper further between May and September this year and submit to the Work Employment & Society journal after the internal review process. Further empirical work using the measures described in the paper has already began in another paper that is planned to be submitted to the Journal of Vocational Behavior.
Uncontrolled Keywords: Conceptualisation, Career success, Undergraduates
