The overall perspective for the research study was to discover the effects and outcomes of profession growth initiatives on companies and employees. The survey is conducted to collect data from the Banking sector in Islamabad and sample selected is of five major private banks. The data is analyzed by using SPSS and Amos to authenticate the model and propositions made by the researcher. Organizations invest resources in profession growth kinds of actions for recruiting, there tends to be less investment in similar kinds of actions for worker retention. This paper examines the link between profession preparing and profession control as antecedents of profession growth and job fulfillment, and profession dedication as its outcome. There is a significant link between the factors of profession preparing and profession control, and profession growth, and in turn, with job fulfillment and profession dedication. The paper converses about the significances of these conclusions for career development. Introduction The globalised world of business is going through unmatched change. Organizations managing in this complicated company environment are regularly involved in reorientation and downsizing procedures, assisting mergers and products and adopting technical enhancements to deal with the powerful demands of globalization (Callanan & Godshalk 2000, Shapiro, Appelbaum, Ayre 2002, Baruch 2004). These changes at the organizational level have raised the value of handling individuals at perform, and in particular, the planning and handling of their careers (Baruch 2004). Probably, individuals are the most effective resource in modern organizations, and providing them with a long lasting constant profession is a win-win situation for both organizations and their workers. In this perspective, a ‘career’ has been described as a long term procedure made up of a sequence of actions and relevant behavior or behaviors that take place in a person’s perform lifestyle (Hall & Affiliates 1986). It is also considered as: a routine of perform relevant encounters, such as job roles, tasks responsibilities or actions, perform relevant decisions; and very subjective understanding of perform relevant events, such as work aspirations, objectives, principles, needs and feelings about particular perform encounters, that period the course of a individual's lifestyle (Greenhaus, et al. 2000). Clearly, a profession is not just a job, but grows around a procedure; an mind-set, behavior and a situation in a individual's perform lifestyle to achieve set profession goals. Baruch (2004) points out that profession is the property of people, but for the applied, it is organizations that will plane to handle worker careers. However, during the last few years the idea that people are also accountable to serve and develop their own careers, instead 108
    • 2. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 of making it entirely to the company to control, has been well recorded (Baruch 2004). Hence, profession control needs effort from both organizations as well as people in order to provide obtains the most for both. Career development is about the growth of workers that is valuable to both the individual and company, and is a complicated procedure. Concepts around the complicated profession growth procedure appeared in nineteen fifties in work. In the last 50 years, major profession growth theories and methods were designed, examined, and therefore, described (Farren & Kaye 1986, Leibowitz, Herr 2001). Farren and Kaye (1986) deal that professional growth includes organize formalized, organized effort to achieve a stability between the person's profession requires and the organization’s workforce specifications. Profession problems, configurations and communities and according to Herr (2001), in the growing world of the present and the future, the methods of profession growth are being pushed to find new paradigms and new medical angles. Herr (2001) suggested that this trend was actually happening as the natural anticipating the waves in the complicated international business environment was progressively impacting personal profession choice. Moreover, Herr outlined that nowadays there was a relief on the works of profession behavior with conversation on how it can be used to guide organized programs of profession treatments and, eventually, to impact on organizational efficiency. Naturally, with proper profession preparing and profession control, a personal desires to obtain the result of such investment by getting profession growth. According to McDaniels and Gysbers (1992), profession growth is the total constellation of psychological, sociological, academic, physical, economic, and chance factors that merge to shape the profession of any given personal over the life time. Callanan and Godshalk (2000) indicates that profession growth is an continuous process by which people success through a sequence of levels, each of which is classified by a relatively unique set of problems, styles, and projects. Hall and Associates (1986) determine profession growth as the results originating from the connections of personal profession preparing and institutional profession control procedures. This idea of career planning and growth initiatives promoting organizational efficiency relies on the organization’s ability to transportation workers from a traditional routine of anticipations to one of improved liability for their own profession growth and growth (Martin, Romero, Valle & Dolan 2001). A well designed profession growth system allows organizations to tap their success of in house ability for employment and marketing by related the skills, experience, and aspirations of people to the needs of the organizations. Moreover, it allows them to make advised choices around settlement and sequence preparing to attract, maintain and encourage the workers, leading to a more involved and effective workers (Thite 2001, Kapel & Shepherd 2004, Kaye 2005). Furthermore, profession growth must be a continuous system connected with the organization’s HR (human resource) components and not a one time occasion (Leibowitz, et al.1988). These arguments concerning nexus between the company and the person in defining and keeping a maintainable profession growth process call for theorizing and examining the antecedents and results of profession growth methods across different situations. Literature review Career Planning and Career Development Career development is a long lasting complicated procedure. Indeed, organizations and people understand and appreciate the natural durability in this complicated trend. Often career growth is revealed as an organizational effort whereby organizations set up systems, procedures, components and systems to nurture career growth projects among people (McDaniels & Gysbers 1992, Herr 2001). However, nowadays, the idea of people seeking their careers and forming, molding and creating in order to get maximum advantage has obtained extensive attention. Hall and Associates (1986), and Granrose and Portwood (1987) highlight the value of career preparing as the first step towards the development of career procedure. Indeed, people need to discover the development of career areas and make choices about personal objectives and growth plans. Area and Affiliates (1986) determine career preparing as a deliberate procedure for becoming aware of self, opportunities, restrictions, choices and repercussions, as well as determining career relevant goals, and development for work, education, and relevant creating experience to provide the direction, moment and series of steps to obtain a specific career objective. Leibowitz, Farren and Kaye (1988) agree with this meaning when they determine planning of career as a process by which people determine their abilities, passions, and principles. Moreover, these writers deal that people 109
    • 3. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 consider which alternatives ‘fit’ them, and set objective and recognize programs for accomplishing their objectives. Furthermore, Leibowitz, Farrenand Kaye (1986) claim that people are accountable for starting their own profession preparing as well as recognize their abilities, principles and passions, and seek out their profession alternatives in order to set objectives and recognize their profession programs. In conclusion, planning for career is considered as an effort where an individual puts personal control over their profession and involves in informed choices as to his profession, company, job task and self growth (Hall & Affiliates 1986). Nevertheless, organizations can assist by providing profession preparing tools or classes through business guidance, or by using workbooks or profession source centers to guide workers to perform self evaluation, analyze and assess their profession alternatives and choice, write down their growth objectives and prepare the execution plan (Hall & Affiliates 1986, Leibowitz, et al. 1988, Appelbaum, et al. 2002). These justifications provide supporting for the first hypothesis H1. H1: Career planning has a positive effect on achievement of career development. Career Management and Career Development Management of career is a further generally mentioned antecedent of development of the career. Once people have organized their career objectives, they require abilities, competencies and principles to perform their career objectives with appropriate Management of career methods. In other terms, the next step after career preparing will be undertaking the plans through appropriate career control methods. Management of career is an ongoing procedure of preparing, creating, applying and tracking career plansand techniques performed by the individual alone or in show with the organization’s career system (Hall & Affiliates 1986, Greenhaus, et al. 2000). Indeed, career control is an ongoing procedure of perform life. Furthermore, a fulfilling career can enhance emotions of satisfaction while inadequate career choices can have a harmful impact on an individual's feeling of well being (Greenhaus, et al. 2000). In addition, modifying surroundings, such as change of business techniques and route, company downsizing, mergers and products and technical changes, will need ongoing career control, leading to the need to review career option and change career routes (Greenhaus, et al. 2000). Study by Greenhaus, Callanan and Godshalk (2000) facilitates the argument that effective career control can allow people to make advised choices that are constant with their abilities, ambitions and principles and enhance company efficiency. Many analyst claim that the profession control effort is a nexus between organizations and people where organizations effort to go with personal passions and abilities with organizational possibilities through a planned program covering actions such as profession techniques, profession guidance, job spinning and other profession control tools and resources (Hall &Associates 1986, Martin, et al. 2001). Moreover, Brown (1998) asserts that profession control methods must support people in their efforts to develop the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that will enable them to be successful. The incorporation of both personal profession planning and institutional profession control processes results in profession growth when the person reaches the profession goals set (Hall & Affiliates 1986). Morrison and Hock (1986) stated that profession control symbolizes the organizational viewpoint in the development of career process. This feature is demonstrated when organizations effort to go with personal passions and abilities with organizational possibilities through a planned program covering such actions as the design of effective internal profession techniques, employee guidance, job spinning possibilities and a blend of positional experiences with on and off the job exercising projects (Hall & Affiliates 1986). Gutteridge (1986) confirms that profession control involves specific HR actions, such as job spinning, potential evaluation, profession guidance, and exercising and education designed to help go with worker passions and abilities with organizational possibilities. An effective management of career practices will help enhances worker understanding, goal and strategy growth and collect appropriate reviews and assist workers in using and creating skills and knowledge that will benefit the company and the growth and self respect of its workers (Greenhaus, et al. 2000, Martin, et al. 2001). There are few studies on the organization of profession control and profession growth. A significant exemption is the research by Noe (1996) who attempt to show the connections between management of career worker development and worker performance. The research results indicated a non-reflex increase in growth activities and exploratory behavior with age, institutional position and a manager’s assistance for growth, as significant members to the profession control process. However, this research did not offer definite proof for the model (Appelbaum, et al. 2002). These contentions offer assistance for the next hypothesis H2. 110
    • 4. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 H2: Career management has a positive effect on achievement of career development. Career Development and Job Satisfaction Organizations that empower management of career are more likely to enlarge employee’s satisfaction of job(Lee 2000). A number of analysts, who provided substitute opinions of satisfaction of job, have valued this idea. First of all, several authors explain satisfaction of job as a mind-set and provide different understanding. For example, Gregson (1987) describes job fulfillment as the positive psychological condition as a result of the individual evaluation of a person's job or encounter. Chay and Bruvold (2003) determine satisfaction of job as your successful reaction to specific aspects of the job. Noe (1996) describes it as a satisfying sensation that results from the understanding that a person's job fulfils or allows for the satisfaction of a person's important job principles (Appelbaum, et al. 2002). Secondly, satisfaction of job is a way of mind-set towards performance related circumstances, aspects or aspects (Wiener 1982). Jepsen and Sheu (2003) noticed that such a mind-set, either by means of preference, or loathing a job, is worldwide and a critical facet of career growth. Clearly, advocates and experts seem to agree to the assumption that nearly everybody looks for fulfillments in his or her performance (Jepsen & Sheu 2003). According to Jepsen and Sheu (2003), if a person becomes involved in perform that suits his work-related options, he is likely to encounter satisfaction of job. Finally, Herzberg’s two factor concept posits that cleanliness aspects are necessary to keep employees from sensation disappointed, but only motivators can lead employees to feel pleased and inspired (Herzberg, Mausner & Sydenham 1959, Bartol & Martin 1998). Motivators include accomplishment, liability; perform itself, identification, growth, and accomplishment (Bartol & Martin 1998). In this respect, Chen, Alter and Yeh (2004) interviewed the ability of development of career programs in giving answers to profession needs at different profession stages and the impact on satisfaction of job, expert growth and productivity among the R&D employees. One of the major conclusions of the research was that profession growth programs favorably impact satisfaction of job, expert growth and efficiency. The current study efforts to further corroborate the linkage between development of career and satisfaction of job, and thereby, assess the next hypothesis, H3. H3: Job satisfaction will positively relate to career development. Career Commitment and Career Development Commitment for career is another result of career growth projects. Area (1971) describes commitment for career as the durability of a person's inspiration to work in a selected career part (Noordin, Williams & Zimmer 2002). Colarelli and Bishop (1990) stated that commitment for career is classified by the growth of individual career objectives, the connection to, recognition with, and participation in those objectives. Organizations that provide career appropriate information and support will narrow employees’ career concentrate and situation them more carefully to a company, resulting in dedication (Granrose & Portwood 1987). Both individual predispositions and organizational treatments impact dedication (Wiener 1982). Deal with an internal described career may become an essential resource of work-related significance and a continual as organizations become more liquid and less able to assurance career protection (Colarelli & Bishop 1990). Perrow (1986) emphasize that career dedication is also essential to the developmentof capability, because dedication to work allows one continue to persist long enough to create specialized abilities and also provides the durability growing business and professional connections (Colarelli & Bishop 1990, Noordin, et al. 2002). Therefore, commitment for career would seem to be essential for career development and growth (Noordin, et al. 2002). Development of career opportunities support career dedication projects among workers. Master (1999) points out that emotional power of self identification, self imminent and strength in seeking career goals signify primary elements for career inspiration and dedication, and for building collaboration, cohesiveness and agreement in company. Profession dedication types a centripetal power inward, defending the company from outside impact, illustrating hr toward plenty of functions of collaboration with each other (King 1999). Lee (2000) points out that workers’ satisfaction of job organizational dedication and comfort levels are important actions of the return on the initiatives of HR function. These feedbacks provide supporting for hypothesis H4. H4: Career commitment increases with the level of satisfaction with career development. 111
    • 5. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 Overall, this research explores the influence of career planning and career management on career development and the subsequent effect on job satisfaction and career commitment. This integrated perspective assumes that career development can increase job satisfaction and career commitment. Conceptual framework Figure 1 provides the conceptual model illustrating the relationships of the variables. It demonstrates that planning of career and management of career, two primary separate factors, and lead to profession growth. Career growth, in turn, links with the two outcome factors of job fulfillment and profession dedication. In other words, the hypothesis is that development of career is an all the surrounding varying illustrating the association of profession preparing and profession control on satisfaction of job and profession dedication. The following explanation provides a detailed explanation of the concepts. Figure - 1: A Conceptual Model of Career Development Methodology Research Design This research study is aimed to find out the impact of career planning and management on the career development of the employees working in banking sector of Pakistan. This study is cross sectional and hypothentico approach study. This styudy further endeavors to find the carrer development impact on the job satisfaction and level of commitment of the employees in the banking industry. Sample & Respondents: Sample is selected from the population through the random stratified sampling and data was collected from the top and middle management of five private banks of Islamabad, Pakistan. A self explanatory questionnaire is used to collect the data from the respondents. Procedure and Analysis: The questionnaire for survey was self-governed and in person disseminated by the researcher among the respondents for the study. One questionnaire was given to each of the respondents according to the extent and nature of data and information required for this study. Researchers endowed with indispensable support to respondents in making technicalities understandable in answering the queries. For analysis of data quantitative tools and techniques, Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and AMOS is utilized for the data analysis. Measures and Instruments - The respondents provided perceptual information about the existence of career planning, setting of career goals and importance of career planning in the career development process. The questions used to assess this variable were adapted from King (1999), Gould (1979) and the reliability estimate of the 11 items was 0.94. Career management practices were assessed by adapting measurement scales from Chen, Chang and Yeh (2004), and Chay and Bruvold (2003). The intervening variable assessed both the importance of career development to the respondents, and whether career planning and career management were important elements to attain career development. The questions were developed by adapting from Coachline’s (available: An adaptation of questions from the Job Diagnostic Survey, as developed by Hackman and Oldham (1980), assessed job satisfaction. An adaptation of the eight items from the work of Chay and Bruvold (2003), and 112

The respondents were asked to articulate their judgments using a five point Likert scale ranging from strongly disagreed (1) to strongly agreed (5). Results and findings The table 1 shows the internal consistency and reliability of the variables. This analysis estimates to ensure consistency and stability of data (Cavana, Delahaye & Sekaran 2001). Cronbach’s coefficient alpha, which measures how well the variables positively relate to one another, was generated by using SPSS software. The data collected from the respondents of the aforementioned entities has no missing values in it and data is normal as the skewness and kurtosis is within the prescribed range of +2. Data taken from the respondents is passed through the normality test of checking mean and standard deviation. The reliability is measured by calculating Cronbatch Alpha and the value ranges from .6 to .9 as the value close to .7 to .8 the reliability is considered as at goodness level. The values in the lower table shows the values falls within the prescribed range and having strong internal consistency with the items to be measured. Table – 1: Reliability of variables Variables Cronbatch Alpha Career Planning .879 Career Management .742 Career Development .773 Job Satisfaction .789 Career Commitment .774 The table 2 shows that the hypothesis made on the basis of literature review and theories in support of the study variables is tested by applying Structural Modeling Equation technique in AMOS. The first hypothesis is accepted on the basis of beta value is .625 and the p-value is less than .05 which depicts that the CP has positively significant impact on the CD. The CP has 62.5% impact on the CD which briefs that if there is 1% change in the CP then the 62.5% change will be seen in the CD and any change in CP precludes the same directional change in the CD. The second hypothesis is accepted on the basis of beta value is .982 and the p-value is less than .05 which depicts that the CM has positively significant impact on the CD. The CP has 98.2% impact on the CD which briefs that if there is 1% change in the CM then the 98.2% change will be seen in the CD and any change in CM precludes the same directional change in the CD. The third hypothesis is accepted on the basis of beta value is .411 and the p-value is less than .05 which depicts that the JS has positively significant impact on the CD. The CP has 41.1% impact on the CD which briefs that if there is 1% change in the JS then the 41.1% change will be seen in the CD and any change in JS precludes the same directional change in the CD. The forth hypothesis is accepted on the basis of beta value is .589 and the p-value is less than .05 which depicts that the CC has positively significant impact on the CD. The CP has 58.9% impact on the CD which briefs that if there is 1% change in the CC then the 58.9% change will be seen in the CD and any change in CC precludes the same directional change in the CD. Table – 2: Hypothesis Testing Path Estimates P-Value Supported/ Unsupported CP  CD .625 > 0.05 Supported CM  CD .982 > 0.05 Supported JS  CD .411 > 0.05 Supported CC  CD .589 > 0.05 Supported The table 3 shows the model fit indices on which the model is authenticated. The value of chi square ranges between 0 to 5 and hence the smaller values showing better fit (Joreskog and Sorbom, 1993). The minor the value Chi-square shows that the model is fit, but the value of chi square is sensitive with the size of sample used in the study, thus with bigger sample sizes can result in significant values even when minor differences exist between the data and model (Anderson & Gerbing, 1988). It has been recommended that a Chi-square two or three times as large as the degrees of freedom is satisfactory (Carmines & McIver, 1981). The chi square is showing the value of 491.52 and the degree of freedom is 96 whereas the value of chi square to degree of freedom ratio is 5.12 which falls within the range. 113
    • 7. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 Chi square is a quintessence to test the significance and it is sensitive to the sample size. Research or study done with the larger sample size almost always rejected when chi square is applied to test their significance (Bentler and Bonnet, 1980; Jöreskog and Sörbom, 1993). In case of smaller sample size used to generalize the population chi square failed to discriminate amongst the good and bad fit models (Kenny and McCoach, 2003). Various indices other than chi square statistics can be used to assess the model fitness those could minimize the impact of sample size on model. On basis of single bench marking decision cannot be predicted as there are other measures to evaluate the items of the variable which includes GFI, CFI and TLI (Jeremy & Hun, 2009). McDonald and Ho (2002) stated that the absolute fitness indices tells about that how well the priori model fit the sampling data and exhibits that which of the proposed model fits most good. This elucidates that how well the proposed theory gets fit into the data. According to Brown (2006) Comparative fit index (CFI) series from 0 for a poor fit, The CFI range closes to 1 show a good fit. The goodness of fit (GFI) and adjusted goodness of fit index (AGFI) depicts statistical value 0.879 of .718 and respectively. Tabachnick and Fidell (2007) reported that GFI is alternatively used against chi square to calculate the proportional variance accounted for by the population covariance. The statistical range is from 0 to 1 and in case of larger sample size its size does increases (Siguaw, 2000). MacCallum and Hong (1997) stated that the upside movement in the value of GFI is due to the larger number of degree of freedom against the sample size (Sharma et al, 2005). In connation to GFI value up gradation depends upon the number of parameters enhancement and larger sample size (Bollen, 1990; Miles, 1998). The statistical value ranges between .867. The value is in range and confirms the standard accordingly. Tabachnick and Fidell (2007) claimed that AGFI based on degree of freedom that depicts reduction of fit and more saturated models and ranges from 0 to 1. Generally the values accepted have value of 0.689 and above. Here the AGFI=0.788 which shows conformity. The statistics of comparative fit index (CFI) assumes that all the latent variables are not correlated with each other and their comparison with sample covariance matrices with this nullified model. Statistical values ranges from 0 to 1 and close to 1 value depicts goodness of fit index (Hu and Bentler, 1999). The cut off criteria value is 0.90 is acceptable value and the CFI value if greater than 0.95 and is indicating goodness of fit index. NFI is statistical measure that is least affected by sample size (Fan et al, 1999). The table below depicts the statistics of comparative fit index (CFI) = .877. In addition to these NFI indicates value = 0.871. These values shows closeness to 1 indicates perfect fit (Bentler, 1992; Bonett and Bentler, 1987) and those which are not close to 1 indicates that sample respondents results based on field survey has some realistic field issues while getting response of the targeted population. RMSEA is one of the most informative fit indexes in connotation with sensitivity to the number of its parameters in the model (Diamantopoulos & Siguaw, 2000). Byrne (1998) claimed that RMSEA, another fitness index to verify the model fitness is Root Mean Square Error of Approximation and tells about how well the model is with the unknown but same time optimally chosen parameter estimates would fit the population’s covariance matrix. The statistical values ranges from .05 to 0.10 are depicting fair indexation fit and values beyond 0.10 are considered to be poor fitness index and values between 0.80 to 0.10 providing medium fitness index whereas the values below 0.80 shows good fit (MacCallum et al, 1996). However, more recently, a cut-off value close to .06 (Hu and Bentler, 1999) or a stringent upper limit of 0.07 (Steiger, 2007) seems to be the general consensus amongst authorities in this area. The next set of fit statistics focus on the root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA) which is .081. Browne and Cudeck (1993) proposed that values less than 0.08 indicates good fit, and values equal than 0.08 represent reasonable errors of approximation in the population.

    • 8. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 Discussion and conclusion The analysis empirically examined the effects of two antecedents and two outcomes of development of career. Particularly, the analysis tested the speculation that planning of career and management of career were the antecedents of development of career, and evaluated the factors of satisfaction of job and commitment for career as outcomes of development of career. The analysis outcomes reveal that both antecedent factors have an impact on development of career. The conclusions exposed that the everyday living of development of career has a direct impact on the accomplishment of satisfaction of job and career dedication. Jointly, these outcomes identify that the factors used in the conceptual model are factors that give rise to the accomplishment of development of career. Overall, the conclusions have significances on the field of development of career. A task to the development of career industry to makes the case for the potency of development of career applications and solutions. While much more remains to be done, this system of analysis has confirmed that development of career applications for applied workers benefit both the employee and the organization with respect to maintaining valuable workers and improving performance fulfillment. Consider a tax motivation directly to companies and/or applied individuals for finishing a profession growth system at regular durations. Developing new Skill Evaluation and Development (supplement current profession and employment services), both applied and jobless. Such Centers and/or solutions would be developed based on growing skills growth needs in the economy, providing support in performance modification situations and advertising increased employability. This study examined the antecedents and results of development of career projects. For the antecedents of contribution in development of career action, organizational ongoing studying lifestyle was shown to have considerable connection with contribution of development of career action. It is suggested that organizations need to create an ongoing studying lifestyle in order to encourage workers to sign up in development of career action voluntarily. Then, individual factors like practical character and profession dedication have considerable connection with employees’ contribution in growth action in which profession dedication mediates the connection of ongoing studying lifestyle and practical character with contribution in growth action. A Job characteristic was to be irrelevant to contribution in growth action. For the results of contribution in growth action, participating in growth action irrelevant to perceived employability and profession satisfaction. Career dedication mediated the connection of ongoing studying culture and practical character with employees’ contribution in growth action. This suggested that profession dedication motivates workers to sign up in growth action. “Career” takes a considerable position in employees’ mind when they are deciding to sign up in growth action or not. Employees who involve in growth action may regard growth action as a tool for them to make advancement in their profession. This study contributed to the existing employee growth literature by examining some possible results of employees’ results of development of career projects. Contrary to our prediction, the two indicators of psychological profession success were irrelevant to contribution in growth action. One essential connotation is the design of development of career model. The research conclusions recommend that the forecast of a positive 115
    • 9. European Journal of Business and Management ISSN 2222-1905 (Paper) ISSN 2222-2839 (Online) Vol.5, No.21, 2013 association of planning of career and management of career with development of career is significant. This research facilitates the working design of organizational development of career drawn up by Hall and Affiliates (1986). Regression analysis shows a more powerful connection between profession preparing and development of career as compared to the connection between profession control and profession growth. The research sample conclusions recommend that profession planning is relatively more essential than management of career in achieving development of career. The second discovering facilitates the speculation that development of career has an influence on job fulfillment and profession dedication. The results show that profession growth had a more powerful linkage with job fulfillment than profession dedication. Considering the lack of scientific investigation that combines these factors together to form a extensive profession growth design, this discovering provides an essential participation to the field of development of career. Although Lee (2000) verified that profession preparing, development and management of career are essential HR management projects that have potential to increase employees’ job fulfillment and organizational dedication, an scientific research has not been applied to develop and test a extensive design of these relationships. Numerous research examined profession stages and profession routes (Jepsen & Dickson 2003 and Baruch 2004), but few research have analyzed factors beyond those associated with profession growth (Granrose & Portwood, 1987, John 1996, Baruch 1999).
