Discussions by researchers on the topic of this study, as summarized in this section, ascertain that the social context has an impact on adult career development. To begin with, it is impossible for a human being and the society to exist separately. For this reason, the development of an adult’s career is dependent on the extent to which the person experiences and reacts to societal influence. Similarly, the person gets information from peers, the family, and the overall society, which may contribute to the developed personal attitude about his or her career. Secondly, the community creates rules which people are required to follow to fit in. Therefore, an individual who lacks autonomous decisions and has a weak personal attitude may end up conforming to the set rules, leading to poor career decisions. Following these findings, adults’ careers are continuously affected by societal norms and pressures as they oppose individual agency to make decisions on the direction of developmental action.
