The myfuture service aims to respond to and reflect current philosophies and theoretical understandings underpinning career guidance practices. When the site was initially scoped, a paper was commissioned on career development theory and practice in Australia. The commissioned paper, Career - more than just a job, was written by Dr Mary McMahon and Peter Tatham and is available on the myfuture website.
McMahon and Tatham describe 'career' as including all facets and roles of an individual's life. This perspective is vital in today's world because a 'job for life' is no longer the norm. The site contains extensive information and exploration activities that reflect this understanding of career.
