Description

Career counseling practitioners hope that clients leave career counseling having experienced a process of transformative learning that has brought them into contact with their deepest sense of vitality. If so, clients are able to narrate a more comprehensible, coherent, and continuous identity narrative. Buoyed by biographical agency and ripe with intention, they should be ready for take action in the real world and prepared to deal with new questions that will emerge. So empowered, they begin to write a new chapter in their life stories, narratives that extend an occupational plot with a meaningful career theme. This chapter explains the importance of turning intention to action in the real world, first through exploration and trial, then through deciding and doing. It concludes with the case of a 19-year-old college sophomore majoring in biology to illustrate career construction interview, assessment routine, and counseling.
