Career development and aging represents a topic of growing importance for individuals as well as organizations. As society and the workforce is aging, late career employees embody a steadily growing proportion of the working population (Van der Heijden, Schalk, & Van Veldhoven, 2008). In order to create and maintain a successful and satisfying late career, this population has to successfully deal with today’s changing work environment and its demands. In this chapter, first a review traditional stage-based models of late career development is given. Then an overview of how the current work environment increasingly necessitates a protean career orientation and career adaptability among older workers is provided. The chapter concludes with implications for career counseling and HR practices regarding older workers.
