Abstract This article considers systemic thinking in relation to the Systems Theory Framework (STF) and to career theory. An overview of systems theory and its applications is followed by a discussion of career theory to provide a context for the subsequent description of STF. The contributions of STF to career theory and to theory integration are presented. Finally, the key constructs of work, learning, and career identity are considered through the lenses of STF and systemic thinking.
