Careers are changing-a simple linear development is now rare. People need to be creative about their careers, and society needs to generate creativity from its work arrangements. Many believe that the so-called creative industries (media, high-tech, IT, etc.) offer a model for likely working patterns and career development in the future.In this book leading experts from ten countries look at the dual meaning of Career Creativity to explore both the creativity in people's career behavior and the concomitant creative development of the institutions of work and society. The book's four sections address the observation of creative careers, the enactment of careers within the social structure, the shape of careers in what have traditionally been seen as creative industries, and the role that careers play in the creation of industries.The chapters cover a diverse range of issues and perspectives such as knowledge-intensive workers, paths to creativity, the career metaphor, transformation and adversity in creative lives, the pursuit of international assignments, and the consequences of career mobility. They draw from a number of different employment sectors including high-technology, craft work, film-making, country music, biotechnology, and open-source software.

Whether by choice or by chance, a growing proportion of the population in major countries no longer have job security or career paths within stable organizations. Career Creativity tackles all the latest issues stemming from this major shift: the rise of knowledge workers, the problem of achieving work/life balance, the mixed blessing of being free agents, and the power of those with talent in creative industries. The collective insights of leading scholarsmap a new intellectual territory that also has practical implications for organizational and social policy.
This book is a fascinating and highly relevant collection . . . that brings career theory and practice into line with the rapidly changing world of work that we are all experiencing.
Creativity is both cause and effect of successful, effective, and meaningful careers - and even a way of viewing careers. The landscape of careers is changing. We need to think "outside the box" to be ready. This collection . . . explodes the box. Get ready for the future and read this book.
