“Occupational identities are created not discovered”
(Campbell & Ungar, 2004b:34)

Creating a career identity and path is dependent on your clients’ ability to critically look at their past, present and future. As counsellor you should provide your client with appropriate methods, exercises and tools (qualitative and quantitative) to ensure they form a holistic picture of themselves and their ideal career path.

Counsellors tend to prefer either a quantitative approach using psychometric assessments, or a qualitative one where narrative exercises are facilitated to identify the clients’ career identity. We believe marrying these two opposing approaches offers clients the best of both worlds.

Within this 3 hour workshop we will briefly look at the various quantitative and qualitative approaches within career processes and how we propose to combine these methods practically.

  • Increased confidence in combining both Qualitative and Quantitative methods in career counselling processes
