As educators we are typically faced with the challenge and opportunity of teaching groups, rather than counseling individuals one-to-one. This chapter will take this classroom setting as a default context and, using theory and research on modern careers, offer advice that is intended to be practical in helping educators and student-practitioners develop more sustainable careers.

This chapter explores the emergent field of study of comparative careers. The authors point to examples that illustrate relevant current research, providing definitions of key concepts and examples of comparative analyses in studies of individual careers and organisational career management. Survey results from two leading-edge career-related research projects are presented to illustrate current trends in the field.
