Beyond the Career Mystique: “Time In,” “Time Out,” and “Second Acts”
Publication:
Sociological Forum, Vol.20, No.2 (June 2005)
.
Publisher:
Eastern Sociological Society
.
Notes:
Discusses the career mystique -- a belief that working hard and putting in long hours continuously throughout adulthood is the path to occupational success, personal fulfillment, and a secure retirement. Explores how this is a false myth, increasingly irrelevant for most contemporary Americans, given that (1) few employees today have the back up of full-time homemakers, and (2) a competitive, information economy has fostered a global labor market, destroying the implicit contract linking seniority with security. America’s 21st century workforce requires a reconfiguration of “time in” paid work, including opportunities for “time outs,” as well as for “second acts.”

Publisher:
Lanham, MD: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2004
.
Notes:
Argues that the career mystique -- the myth that hard work, long hours, and continuous employment will pay off (a myth still embraced by most Americans) -- is a false myth standing in the way of creating new, alternative workplaces and career flexibility. Suggests that the lock step arrangements around education, work, family, and retirement no longer fit the realities and risks of contemporary living, yet the roles, rules, and regulations spawned by the career mystique remain in place. Shows that ambiguities and uncertainties about the future abound in boardrooms, in offices, and on factory floors, as Americans face the realities of corporate restructuring, chronic job insecurity, and double demands at work and at home

Publisher:

Notes:
Unlike most studies that have viewed retirement as a one-way, one-time exit, this study looks at the retirement process over time. More than 664 workers and retirees (ages 50 to 72) were interviewed every two years over a five-year period. This resulting report summarizes their findings across the entire retirement process from planning for retirement, transitioning into retirement, post-retirement employment, volunteer service, and health and well being
