My name is Antonne. I was born and raised up in the China. I later moved to the United States out of the influence of my parents.my parents were moving and so to me.in the United States, we settled in the North Carolina. I come from a middle class family. It is composed of four members, that is, my parents, my younger sister and I. My sister is pursuing nursing and will soon be working in a hospital. On the other hand, my father is a business person. My mother recently retired from the banking profession.
My family is a healthy one as my parents love their children and believe that each and every child should pursue the career they love. Importantly, according to Krumboltz,the relevant career development theories are Trait factor and Psychological. Accordingly, trait factor of an individual matches the individual’s traits to his/her desired occupation.
Furthermore, according to Super, the relevant development theories are Decision and Developmental. Correspondingly, Decision takes into account the situational factors that make one choose a certain career path. On the other hand, the Developmental theory takes into account one’s self concept rather than his/her life span. By the same token, I will elaborate on my career autobiography.
