Creativity in the face of both adversity and opportunity is the hallmark of career success. The premise of this book is that careers and creativity are broadly connected, both at the level of the individual and at the level of the larger institutions of work and society. Careers are both creative endeavours themselves, and introduce creativity into the wider employment system. By exploring models of creativity and career, and linking them with examples from a diverse array of professions, countries, and industries, this volume provides an in-depth look at contemporary careers.

Careers are changing-a simple linear development is now rare. People need to be creative about their careers, and society needs to generate creativity from its work arrangements. Many believe that the so-called creative industries (media, high-tech, IT, etc.) offer a model for likely working patterns and career development in the future. In this book leading experts from ten countries look at the dual meaning of Career Creativity to explore both the creativity in people's career behavior and the concomitant creative development of the institutions of work and society. The book's four sections address the observation of creative careers, the enactment of careers within the social structure, the shape of careers in what have traditionally been seen as creative industries, and the role that careers play in the creation of industries. The chapters cover a diverse range of issues and perspectives such as knowledge-intensive workers, paths to creativity, the career metaphor, transformation and adversity in creative lives, the pursuit of international assignments, and the consequences of career mobility. They draw from a number of different employment sectors including high-technology, craft work, film-making, country music, biotechnology, and open-source software.
