Description

This chapter describes the framework and elements of the Career Construction Interview during which practitioners ask story-crafting questions, which scaffold career construction. The Career Construction Interview consists of stimulus questions that have evolved over the last 30 years. The career construction counseling discourse theorizes these questions and their sequence. The Career Construction Interview consists of five primary elements of inquiry, each chosen as a gateway to stories about a particular topic. A structured format arranges the five stimulus questions in a sequence that systematically prompts an evocative unfolding of a client's occupational plot and career theme. The stimulus questions, ask about: role models that individuals admired when they were young; television shows they watch regularly; a current favorite story from a book or movie; the saying or motto they like most; and early recollections from around the age of 6.
