Description

Work in the 21st century leaves people feeling anxious and insecure. Jobless work and automation have produced 'insecure workers,' especially those peripheral and external employees who perform temporary assignments. Depending upon a client's needs, practitioners may provide different career services: vocational guidance, career education and coaching, or career construction. Each career intervention—whether it be guiding, developing, or constructing—is valuable and effective for its intended purpose. This book describes methods of career construction counseling based on the conceptual model of life designing. The chapter defines counseling and how career counseling has evolved over the last century. The counseling profession has evolved three distinct conceptual models to direct how they conduct career counseling: guiding, developing, and constructing. The chapter explains why career construction counseling discourse meets the needs of individuals preparing for and participating in the new world of work forged by the digital revolution and the global economy.
