Alternate Credit – Exam 2 1.  Career paths fall into two categories according to Eli Ginzberg, either stable, or  shifting (559). According to the textbook, people with stable career patterns stay  with a single job, and by midlife tend to reach positions of power and  responsibility, while people who follow the shifting pattern try to achieve a better  match between what they can do and what they want and expect from their work,  with what they are getting out of it (559).The text book also points out that  middle aged men that follow the stable career paths tend to be either  “workaholics” or “mellowed” (559). I think that career paths today differ from  career paths 50 years ago greatly. I think 50 years ago, the stable career path was  more commonly taken because people needed to make money and provide for  their not so small families. I think nowadays the shifting career path is more  commonly taken because people aren’t getting married and having children,
