Existing situation
The cross-cultural collaboration on contemporary careers (5C) group is a non-profit consortium of faculty teams from around the world that explores career success and management and variations between the two. In addition to cultural differences, factors such as age (or ‘generation’), familial background, ethnicity, industry, etc. are examined in order to assess their impact upon career differences. The ultimate purpose of the consortium is to improve our understanding of modern careers and advance scholarship, appreciate differences and identify progressive solutions for the management of career issues (e.g. work-life balance and fulfilment) on behalf of individuals, career practitioners, organisations and even societies as a whole.
