Krumboltz's theory

Krumboltz's theory maintains that your career choices aren't predestined or set in stone. As a kid, your career goals -- ballerina, astronaut, or ballerina-astronaut with X-ray vision -- were probably a far cry from your current professional aspirations. Maybe you remember your dream job springing from a cartoon, book or inspirational person. Career theorist Dr. John Krumboltz of Stanford University expands on this idea with theories that explore the origins of career choice based on influential life events. Krumboltz believes that genetic endowment and special abilities -- qualities you inherited from birth, even -- can make your more apt to pursue certain careers and limit you from chasing others. Just as the mind and body you're born with have an effect, so, too, does the world into which you're born; Krumboltz says that environmental conditions and events are the second factor in career choice development.
