Abstract: The general objective of the study was to investigate career management in a firm engaged in downsizing, with special reference to Vodafone Ghana. Specifically, the study sought the causes of downsizing in a firm, the consequences of downsizing on the individual and the organization, the extent to which a firm can manage careers when downsizing and the strategies that can be adopted for a successful career management while downsizing. The research design adopted for the study was descriptive. The simple random sampling technique was used to select respondents for the study. A total of 100 respondents were used for the study. This comprised 80 employees and 20 top management officials. The questionnaire was the main instrument used for data collection and analysis was done using the Statistical Product and Service Solutions to generate figures, frequencies, percentages and tables. The study revealed that the possible causes of downsizing include loss in companies, economic crisis, decrease in sales leading to decreased population and a significant change in the management roles. It is therefore recommended that Vodafone Ghana must exhaust all other forms of cost-savings decisions, identify and address the root causes of events that led to the downsizing exercise.
