Abstract

A career is mostly seen as a course of successive situations that make up a person's occupation.
A person's worth is often measured by the career success or failings. It is not until an individual
matures and takes possession of their life that the realization of life balance occurs. Life balance
entails separating career activities, achievements and tasks from the rest of a person’s life. For
example, leaving the job at work and having a home life. Learning that career is necessary to
meet the needs of life and also have a life as well.

My Own Career Stages

Exploration Period
The exploration stage includes activities like trying to clarify and identify our own
interest and skills, building skills through education or training programs. Modifying or
dealing with constrain such as finances and parental pressure and making initial
decisions on jobs and organization of interest. Exploration is influence by school,
college, university, family, and friends jobs and roles may be tried and rejected false
start may occur, but through all these searching activities the young adult is gaining
knowledge and developing a self-image in terms of possible career goals and direction.

Establishment Period
The establishment stage includes the successful negotiation through the recruiting
process, acceptance of a job, and orientation into the chosen organization. During the
early socialization into an organization an individual develops a sense of the future
likely within that organization socialization is followed by a process of mutual
acceptance. Both the individual and the organization must accept and learn the
capabilities of the other. Open exchange of information and feedback on the
performance of both the individual and organization is necessary.

Maintenance
At this stage, we become an important member of the organization. Our work
assignments are more vital in nature. We at this stage are expected to serve as a role
model and mentor for younger employees the maintenance stage may also be a time of
mid-career crisis, which can be stimulated be events outside the work life such as family
changes, changed financial obligation recognition of limits etc.

Decline
The latest part of a career is called the decline stage. The later years of a career are
characterized as a time of decline. Preparation for retirement may involve psychological
withdrawal from the organization long before physical separation occurs. A reduced
role with less responsibility may be assigned person and work relationship may be
adjusted according to their value to the individual and the amount of effort the
individual is willing to expend on maintaining them.
