  • Career-first: an approach to sustainable labour market integration
    • Abstract: Abstract Active labour market policies aim at supporting people entering and, importantly, remaining in the labour market. Initiatives to this end have often been characterised by a mixture of ‘human capital’ and ‘work-first’ approaches, although both have had a relatively limited effect on achieving job sustainability for those most distant from the labour market. This paper explores a distinctive approach to supporting job entry and sustainable employment that we have called ‘career-first’. The career-first approach to labour activation draws on three separate traditions of thinking: labour market, career development, and the capability literatures. Common ground is found in these three perspectives so each complements the weaknesses of the others. A career-first approach may be able to help deliver benefits to the individual, their family, and the wider society.

  • Approaches and strategies for understanding the career development needs
           of migrants and refugees: the potential of a systems-based narrative
    • Abstract: Abstract Addressing immigrants’ social and work inclusion is a priority at a time of increasing migration to Italy and Europe. Career counsellors can identify the sense of self in transition, consider complex experiences and socio-cultural stories, and tailor actions for inclusion. This project enhances understanding of this process and the elements that impact outcome and meaning of social inclusion and post-migration career development, providing suggestions for career guidance. We also explore the contribution of the Systems Theory Framework as a meta-theoretical and practical map, and present case studies. Results underscore the potential of a narrative approach to support immigrants’ career development.

  • The role of self-esteem in the relationship between ego-identity and
           career aspiration among South African adolescents
    • Abstract: Abstract Global socio-economic trends in the world of work, especially in transitional societies like South Africa, confront adolescents with career challenges that require a clear sense of self. We explore the relationship between ego-identity and career aspiration, the moderating role of gender, and the mediating role of self-esteem among 336 Black African adolescents. Statistically significant positive correlations were found between both ego-identity and self-esteem with career aspiration. No significant moderating role of gender or mediating role of self-esteem was established. Findings suggest the importance of a well-developed ego-identity and favourable self-esteem in the career aspiration of Black adolescents in South Africa.

  • Family influence on undergraduates’ career choice implementation
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examined the influence of family on career choice implementation, assuming that implementation can be assessed through goal progress and satisfaction, and that family influences the latter through perceived environmental supports or barriers and self-efficacy. Three hundred and twenty-three college students completed measures of family’ values and beliefs, expectations, financial and informational support, and of students’ perceived environmental support and barriers, academic self-efficacy, goal progress, and satisfaction. Path analysis results indicated that family values, expectations, and supports indirectly influence students’ choice implementation through supports and barriers and self-efficacy. Such influences should be considered in career interventions.

  • Perceived research environment, motivation, and academic interest in
           research: a social-cognitive perspective
    • Abstract: Abstract Using social-cognitive career theory as a framework, we investigated whether research self-efficacy and outcome expectations mediated between perceived research environment and research motivation (intrinsic, extrinsic, and failure avoidance) and interest in research. Participants were 290 Indonesian academics (48.8% female; mean age 43 years). Perceived research environment and failure avoidance were related indirectly to interest in research via self-efficacy and outcome expectations, and intrinsic motivation was related both directly and indirectly. Perceived research environment was related indirectly to outcome expectations via self-efficacy; intrinsic motivation and failure avoidance were related both directly and indirectly; and extrinsic motivation was related directly.

  • Online career counseling success: the role of hardiness and psychological
    • Abstract: Abstract Online career counseling is an important new horizon for vocational guidance. The present study investigates the role of online career counseling and of psychological capital and hardiness on career decision making. The research population included all Tehran students in 2019. After random selection, 30 students each were assigned into either the online counseling group or the control group. After online counseling, intervention students had higher scores than the control group on career decision-making. In the intervention group (but not the control group), students with higher hardiness and psychological capital had higher scores on career decision-making.

  • Factors influencing adaptation from university to employment in Portugal
           and Brazil
    • Abstract: Abstract The career adaptation model helps to explain the process of transitioning from university to employment among college students. This study tested the invariance of the model for gender and for Portuguese and Brazilian cultural contexts. Participants included 638 students (69% women, 66.1% Brazilian), aged 18 to 56 (M = 23.78, SD = 20.33). Individuals’ adaptability resources, adapting responses, and adaptation results were considered and assessed. Multigroup path analysis results indicated invariance of the model only for contexts, indicating that the adaptation process, in university to employment transition, is equivalent in Portugal and Brazil, guiding career interventions in both contexts.

  • ‘My family’s goals are also my goals’: the relationship between
           collectivism, distal utility value, and learning and career goals of
           international university students in Germany
    • Abstract: Abstract The utility value of an academic task can affect university students’ learning behavior and career choices. For collectivistic-oriented students, learning and career goals also matter to their families. Following expectancy-value theory, we assumed that families’ achievement-related expectations would affect collectivistic-oriented students’ utility value. We conducted a survey study with 154 international university students in Germany. We found a significant mediation effect of students’ distal utility value of their university coursework on the relationship between students’ collectivism, learning goal orientation, and motivation to follow family-oriented distal career goals, respectively. Practical implications for career counselors and university teachers are discussed.

  • Career adaptability and associations with personality traits and
           pathological traits utilizing network analysis
    • Abstract: Abstract This study investigated relationships between career adaptability and personality and pathological traits using the network analysis approach. We administered CAAS, BFI-2-S, and IDCP-2 to 630 working adults. We observed positive associations between personality and career adaptability and negative associations between pathological traits and career adaptability. This paper contributes to the understanding of the associations between career adaptability and Big Five personality traits and pathological traits. We found stronger associations between career adaptability and personality traits as compared to pathological traits. Our findings suggest that Neuroticism and Conscientiousness contribute more to adaptation to professional development tasks than do pathological traits.

  • Critical factors that influence a young person’s journey toward
           sustainable employment
    • Abstract: Abstract This article examines the employment trajectories of 50 young job seekers to gain insight into the critical factors that influence a young person’s journey toward sustainable employment. Drawing on the employability and youth unemployment literatures, the analysis revealed that lower levels of education, limited access to transport and housing, multiple non-vocational barriers, and disengagement from job search, were typical characteristics of young people who experienced long periods of unemployment. The findings provide support for future employability research to consider factors outside the control of the young person when predicting the sustainable employment. Considerations for vocational and career counselors are discussed.

    • Abstract: Abstract This article provides an account of current public policy for career guidance in the Republic of Armenia. Brief background information is provided in terms of key geographical, political, social and economic facts about Armenia. Then, a more specific context is outlined with a brief overview of the education and skills system and of the labour market environment. Career guidance in Armenia needs to be understood in relation to recent public policy initiatives to introduce active labour market programmes. The scope of these programmes is outlined and a critique of current policy is provided. Finally, priorities for future development are considered.

  • A critique of the Capability Approach’s potential for application to
           career guidance
    • Abstract: Abstract In this article, we provide a balanced critique of Sen’s Capability Approach (CA) with reference to its potential to inform career guidance theory and practice. There are varying understandings and interpretations of the CA. Some see capabilities as universal, whilst others favour a more relativist view. The CA is also vulnerable to misunderstanding. Critiques based on misunderstanding are easily dismissed, so our focus is on substantive conceptual and practical critiques. Three main challenges are explored: conceptual debates about the nature of freedom and justice; limitations arising from the disciplinary origins of the CA; and challenges in operationalising the CA.

  • The dimensional structure of metaphors of career and their relations to
           career agency, job search self-efficacy, and negative career outlook
    • Abstract: Abstract We measured 16 career-related metaphors’ salience to university students and graduates (N = 577). The JOURNEY metaphor recorded the highest score (62%) with moderate levels for ENCOUNTERS AND RELATIONSHIPS, A STORY, and ROLES. Exploratory structural equation modelling revealed four factors labelled as Constraint (i.e. entrapped, struggling, or living within constraints), Personal Experience (i.e. humanistic, person-centred qualities), Complexity (i.e. complex, integrated parts of an unfolding whole), and Procedure (i.e. established protocols or systems of meaning making). This study demonstrates a framework for conceptualizing relations among career-related variables: career agency, job search self-efficacy, and negative career outlook.

  • Calling and career commitment among Chinese college students: career locus
           of control as a moderator
    • Abstract: Abstract We examined career locus of control (CLOC) as a moderator in calling and career commitment among 481 Chinese college students. Hierarchical regression indicated that powerful others’ control and chance control weakened calling’s relationship with career commitment. A person-centered cluster analysis identified four clusters: (1) high internal and high/moderate external, (2) low internal and high external, (3) high internal and low external, and (4) low internal and low external. Calling was positively correlated with career commitment for individuals in clusters 1 and 4, but the correlations were not significant among individuals in clusters 2 and 3.

  • A critical incident study: Exploring Korean workers’ experiences
           with career chance events
    • Abstract: Abstract We investigated South Korean workers’ reflections on career chance events in terms of types of chance occurrences and factors that influence how these are reacted to. A critical incident technique was used to collect data from 85 participants using an open-ended questionnaire. Various types of events that happened unexpectedly were identified through a two-dimensional framework: whether an event was relationship based or experienced based, and whether it occurred in personal areas or work areas. Influencing factors that affected the participants’ reactions were also categorized using a two-dimensional framework: internal or external, and facilitating or discouraging dimensions.

  • The Italian adaptation of courage measure
    • Abstract: Abstract This project developed and examined the psychometric properties of an Italian version of the Courage Measure, the reduced version composed of six items as suggested by Howard and Alipour (J Posit Psychol 9:449–459, 2014). Two studies were conducted with independent samples of Italian adults, providing psychometric support for the Italian adaptation of the inventory. This short scale is proposed as a useful tool in the fields of mental health and career counselling for assessing the propensity of individuals to behave courageously and to persist despite perceived risks. Scores may indicate potential to overcome personal challenges related to everyday life as well as career-related problems.

  • The emotions aroused by a vocational transition in adolescents: why, when
           and how are they socially shared with significant others'
    • Abstract: Abstract Adolescents (N = 359) completed a self-report questionnaire assessing the emotional impact of an anticipated transition, their social-sharing modes, the motives and benefits of sharing, and their relationship intimacy with significant others. Partners and motives of vocational sharing depended on the transition’s valence. The intensity of negative emotions and perceived intimacy were positively related to frequency and depth of vocational sharing; intensity of positive emotions and intrapersonal and interpersonal benefits only with the depth of sharing. The links between the quality of relationships with significant others, emotions, social sharing, the management of vocational transitions and career development are discussed.

  • Integrating storytelling and quantitative career assessment
    • Abstract: Abstract Combining quantitative career assessment with narrative career counselling is a career counselling challenge. The Integrative Structured Interview (ISI) facilitates this integration through the narration of career stories based on quantitative scores, such as those of the Self-Directed Search. The aims of this single case research were to: (a) examine the process of an Integrative Structured Interview with a participant, and (b) explore it from the participant and interviewer perspectives using an interpersonal process recall interview. The results suggest the benefits of the ISI process and a need for further research with a range of client groups.

  • Innovative moments and narrative change in career counselling: a case
    • Abstract: Abstract This case study of an undecided university student has two aims: to assess the effect of life design career counselling on autobiographical reasoning and career variables, and to analyse the client’s narrative transformation using the innovative moments coding system. Results show improvement in career development and organization of autobiographical narrative. The client’s narrative evolved from basic to complex levels of elaboration. The spontaneous emergence of re-conceptualization innovative moments differs from previous studies and suggests that counselling length and tasks can facilitate re-conceptualization. Among the implications, the use of narrative change markers to fit counselling tasks to clients’ level of development is discussed.
