Career career counseling, career construction, life design, role models
The 21st century brings challenges for advancing career counseling and vocational psychology on a global level. The globalization of career work called for innovations in theory as well as interventions, techniques, and concepts. The emergence of life design with its emphasis on self-making, identity shaping and career-construction provides not only useful theory, intervention and technique but the powerful theoretical concept of role models. Career construction counseling and the Career Story Interview provide a context for exploration of the influence of role models on the construction of both self and career. The efficiency and comprehensive nature of the career construction process answers the call for cost-effective, useful interventions required for advancing career counseling and vocational psychology across cultures as a global endeavor.
