A public lecture by Professor Paul J. HARTUNG

Life design emerged just a decade ago as a new, internationally-constructed paradigm for career practice and science (Savickas et al., 2009). Intended to comprehend the complexities of 21st-century work and careers, life design builds upon differential and developmental models of vocational behavior by focusing on constructing self through work. Life design thereby advances a view on career as projective self-making to augment 20th-century views on career as objective person-occupation match and subjective cycle of self in work over the lifespan. A synthesis of differential, developmental, and life-design models and methods within the context of Career Construction Theory and Practice (Savickas, 2019, in press) suggests ways to advance career practice and science in the next decade.
