Career development in childhood has attracted minimal focus in the field as most attention has been placed on key transition points, such as entry to college or workforce. However, a number of theoretical developments has changed this position. This chapter will present discussion on why these changes have occurred and will focus on three key constructs in the early school years: career adaptability, employability and resilience. Proposals for interventions with this age group will be discussed.
