Organizations obtain work from people by offering them some kind of career within their structures.  The operation of organizations, therefore, depends on people assuming a career orientation toward them.  To generate this orientation, organizations distribute rewards, working conditions, benefits and prestige to their members according to career level.  Thus, these benefits are properties of the organizational career. This book is a formal theory of organizational careers generated from 63 research articles on aspects of careers.
