This article provides an overview of our research on the well-being and career development of young employees who are about to make, or have recently made, the transition from school to work. We discuss our findings with regard to the job characteristics that are important for enabling young adults to perform well, and with regard to the career competencies they need to have a successful start in their working lives. We show that it is of particular importance to integrate research on well-being and career development among young workers. Moreover, we have developed and empirically tested two tools: the Career Competencies Questionnaire (CCQ) and the CareerSKILLS intervention. This article presents these tools and also offers a number of recommendations for future research and for practice.
