  • Using the self-directed search in the career construction interview
    • Abstract: Issues related to modern and post-modern approaches to career assessment and counseling are evident in the literature, as are ideas on how to build on and combine techniques. Although Holland’s theoretical interventions can appear to conflict with career construction counseling due to their bases in modern and post-modern philosophy, respectively, we examine how aspects of the Self-Directed Search (SDS), based on Holland’s RIASEC theory, can be operationalized in relation to the principal ideas and practices in the career construction interview. We discuss how SDS items can enable clients to tell their career story and practical applications to the life-design paradigm.

  • Future perceptions of Israeli and Hong Kong young adults
    • Abstract: This study examined the future perceptions of Israeli and Hong Kong young adults focusing on three aspects: (a) time horizon (how far into the future participants envision), (b) future life roles on which they focus, and (c) emotions towards their perceived future. Twenty students took part in semi-structured interviews. Israeli participants reported a narrower range of time horizon. Both samples mentioned four domains when envisioning their future: work, relationships, education, and leisure. Both Israeli and Hong Kong participants were similar in their emotions towards their perceived future, although Israeli participants were overall more positive. Research and practice implications are discussed.

  • A comparison of Korean and Indonesian secondary school students’
           career values
    • Abstract: The exploration of career values can motivate and inspire young people, and help them achieve career success. The current study assesses the effect of sociocultural background on adolescents' career value among 951 Indonesian and 1,242 Korean secondary school students. Latent class analysis results suggest that participants can be grouped into five classes: personal-stability oriented, ability utilization, social-status oriented, social-relation oriented, and multi-valued leadership. Furthermore, the result of a three-way ANOVA indicated significant interactions for country, gender, and educational level on all career values for every class. The findings are discussed in the sociocultural contexts of Indonesia and Korea.

  • Relations between graduates’ learning experiences and employment
           outcomes: a cautionary note for institutional performance indicators
    • Abstract: Higher education broadly assumes a conceptual link between generic skills and employability. We accessed a large sample of data collected by the Australian Government to investigate whether the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) subscales Good Teaching (GTS), Graduate Skills (GSS), and Graduate Qualities (GQS) predicted graduates’ employment status, overall course satisfaction, and decisions to take further studies. GTS was found to predict graduates’ overall course satisfaction; however, GSS and GQS scales combined predicted negligible increases in employment outcomes. Our findings highlight the imperative for higher education leaders to critically examine discourse about the link between employability skills and employment outcomes.

  • Practitioners’ vocational guidance with direct learning model:
           influencing career commitment and employability in electrical/electronic
           technology education
    • Abstract: This study investigates the effects of vocational guidance with a direct learning model on university students’ career commitment and employability skills via career learning self-efficacy. Participants (N = 214) were electrical/electronic technology education students drawn from two universities in Nigeria. A two-group quasi-experimental design with a three-wave survey was adopted. Results revealed increased career commitment making, identification with commitment, perceived future employability skills, and career learning self-efficacy among the intervention group compared to those in the control group. Increase in career learning self-efficacy mediated identification with commitment, but not career commitment making and perceived future employability skills.

  • Using the hope-centered career inventory (HCCI)—Italian version with
           healthcare professionals
    • Abstract: To address twenty-first century challenges, Niles, Amundson, and Neault (2011) developed the Hope-Centered Model of Career Development (HCMCD) from which they derived the Hope-Centered Career Inventory (including domains of hope, self-reflection, self-clarity, visioning, goal setting/planning, implementing, and adapting). The current study tests the psychometric properties, structural, convergent, and discriminant validity of the Italian version of the HCCI. Confirmatory factor analyses in a sample of 536 healthcare professionals supported the validity of the measure among healthcare professional, confirmed the model of hope-centered career competencies, and reinforced the importance of hope for an effective career self-management in the current work context.

  • Work–study boundary congruence: its relationship with student
           well-being and engagement
    • Abstract: We tested a work–study congruence model, in which student role congruence was related to student engagement and well-being via work–study conflict and facilitation. We found (251 working students; 70% female; mean age 24.68 years) greater congruence to be associated with better engagement and well-being, and conflict and facilitation to mediate partially between congruence and well-being, explaining 37.5% of the variance in engagement and 41.1% in well-being. The study demonstrates that the role congruence approach is useful to understand the experiences of working students and points to how interventions might assist students who struggle with multiple competing roles.

  • Work orientation questionnaire: measurement invariance and criterion
           validity among Swiss, Israeli, and Italian workers
    • Abstract: This study examined the measurement equivalence of the Work Orientation Questionnaire (WOQ) that assesses five orientations of work meaning: calling, job, career, social embeddedness, and busyness in a sample of Swiss, Israeli, and Italian workers (N = 909). Tests of measurement invariance suggest that the WOQ is reliable and valid across the three countries. Three out of the five orientations (calling, job, and social embeddedness) predicted work engagement, career satisfaction, and job satisfaction in all three countries. Overall, the WOQ seems to be a useful tool to assess the various meanings of work in a diversity of cultural settings.

  • Let’s talk about career guidance in secondary schools! A consideration
           of the professional capital of school staff in Ireland and England
    • Abstract: The delivery of a comprehensive career guidance service in secondary schools through the whole school model that equips students with requisite career learning and development competencies has garnered credence in recent years. This article deliberates on the current situation of this type of provision in secondary schools in Ireland and England and the implications for professional practice in both countries. Specifically, it considers the conditions that could support the delivery of a whole school approach to career guidance through the concept of professional capital.

  • Social cognitive factors of science, technology, engineering, and
           mathematics career interests
    • Abstract: Guided by the social cognitive career theory (SCCT), this study examines the factors influencing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) career interests and the career goals of college students in Taiwan (N = 320). A two-step modeling approach was used. First, the measurement part of the model was examined followed by a test of the full structural equation model. Both the measurement models and the path models were confirmed, suggesting a good fit of SCCT for Taiwanese college students. The correlations among SCCT constructs were in the expected directions. Implications for professional counseling and research are discussed.

  • Calling and career commitment among Chinese college students: career locus
           of control as a moderator
    • 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.

  • Children’s occupational knowledge: a conceptual framework and
    • Abstract: We describe a conceptual framework for and introduce a measure to examine children’s knowledge about occupations and the world of work. The framework comprises three aspects of occupational knowledge: identifying occupations from pictures (occupational picture naming), naming and explaining occupations (occupational vocabulary), and explaining the essence of work (occupational comprehension). Scale development included exploratory and confirmatory phases. The Cronbach alpha for the subscales ranged between 0.70 and 0.90. Age differences on scales were compared between 3- and 8-year-old children (N = 101). The older children demonstrated greater occupational knowledge than the youngest in all aspects. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

  • Enacted mind, enminded and encultured action in vocational counseling:
           contextual action theory
    • Abstract: Vocational counseling is rooted in a dualistic Cartesian conception of life: the separation of mind and body. In contrast, neuropsychology and cognitive psychology provide a non-Cartesian approach, emphasizing the notion of enacted mind. Recent developments in vocational psychology, such as the constructionist and relational approaches, systems theory, and calls for agency, integrate such thinking. For example, contextual action theory offers a comprehensive approach to enacted mind and enminded and encultured action. Additionally, empirical research and counseling practice offer tools not only to fulfill the criteria required by a non-Cartesian approach but bring career counseling practice closer to human experience.

  • LGB identity and career decision-making self-efficacy among sexual
           minority college students
    • Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of LGB identity on career decision-making self-efficacy. This study utilizes a mediation model that incorporates a personal (self-compassion) and an environmental (social support) factor as key model variables. Mediating effects of social support and self-compassion were found. Specifically, LGB identity was associated with social support, which in turn was linked with increased self-compassion, resulting in greater self-efficacy in career decision-making.

  • Development and validation of the Career-related Teacher Support Scale:
           data from China
    • Abstract: Support from teachers is essential to students’ career preparation and planning, but few instruments assess their career-related support. We describe the development and validation of the Career-related Teacher Support Scale (CRTSS) among Chinese technical college students (N = 1674). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses indicate: (a) three types of perceived career-related teacher support; (b) best fit for a bi-factor model with a general factor and three sub-factors, with (c) the general factor explaining more common variance than sub-factors; (d) measurement invariance across genders; (e) good reliability and validity. Implications for researchers, policy makers, teachers, and students are discussed.

  • Young adults’ perceived future employability: antecedents and
    • Abstract: Optimistic perception of one’s future employability is critical for young people, being linked to motivation, behaviours, and well-being. We tested some antecedents and outcomes to perceived future employability (PFE) and their mediation effects. Responses (N = 324, 62.3% female, mean age 20.77 years) revealed that (1) career calling, strategies, proactivity, and encouragement were related to PFE, (2) PFE was related to career planning, performance, and satisfaction, and (3) PFE mediated all antecedents to satisfaction, but not to planning or performance.

  • Taking a test is telling stories: a narrative approach to interest
    • Abstract: Interest inventories are essential tools in the field of career counseling, and their usability can be enhanced based on narrative-based assessments and interventions from constructivist approaches. This paper aims to present a systematized procedure to facilitate narrative interventions based on the results of interest inventories. A conceptual relation between narrative career counseling and therapeutic assessment is proposed, as well as an explanation of the psychological processes involved in the response to self-report tests. Two cases are presented to illustrate the application of this procedure. The limitations of this study and directions for future research are also discussed.

  • Career/lifelong guidance systems and services: continuous transformations
           in a transition region
    • Abstract: This comparative study traces the foundation and development of vocational and career guidance services in three Central and Eastern European countries in the light of the contextually bound factors of this region. Since the beginning of the 20th century, political transitions and changes in the ruling structures in these countries were so frequent that the same generation was often confronted with multiple forms of governance: the rule of ‘König und Kaiser’, the monarchy, the communist regime, neoliberal economic policies with mass privatisation, membership of the European Union.

  • Career history and career identity: antecedents of job-field
    • Abstract: The current article deals with the antecedents that generate a phenomenon of a mismatch between an academic graduates' field of education and their occupational field (horizontal mismatch). The two examined antecedents were the individuals' career history and their "career identity" level. It has been found that (a) the more expansive the individual's layoff history, the greater their horizontal mismatch level, and (b) the higher the individual's career identity level, the lower their horizontal mismatch level. This emphasizes the importance for academic individuals regarding investing in specific competencies, skills, and abilities throughout their career, to aid in career success.
