Summary: The Career Mystique shows that most Americans-men and women-continue to embrace the myth that hard work, long hours, and continuous employment pay off, even though it is out of date and out of place in twenty-first-century America. Phyllis Moen and Patricia Roehling argue 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 care ...show moreer mystique remain in place. This books 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. Moen and Roehling show the career mystique for what it is: a false myth standing in the way of creating new, alternative workplaces and career flexibilities.

Based on research funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the National Institute on Aging.

  • Names and defines the obsolete myth undergirding of the American Dream
  • Shows how even young children learn the career mystique, and how it shapes the goals and strategies of Americans at every life stage.
  • Descibes how American men and women manage, given the mismatch between the "rules of the game" based on the career mystique and the uncertainties, ambiguities, and overloads of work -- and life -- in the 21st century..
  • Suggests new workplace flexibilities more in keeping with today's, not yesterday's, workforce
