Introduction Career development has traditionally had a strong link with a concern for social equity and social justice. The origins of the vocational guidance movement in the United States of America were as contributing to a process of gradualist social reform, seeking to improve the work conditions of the poor (Brewer, 1942; Stephens, 1970).
