Abstract

Abstract:

Because of the school focus on academics, school counselors have little time for career counseling activities for students that prepare and highlight the work–life task. Students from low-socioeconomic-status backgrounds do not have the resources or opportunities to explore their career identity using traditional methods. Therefore, it is important that school counselors provide individualized career counseling using a narrative approach to help such students address the work–life task and develop a clear career identity. Adding a narrative approach that includes the use of early recollections enhances traditional career counseling practices by emphasizing students’ strengths, adaptability, flexibility, and lifelong learning to adapt to the world of work in the 21st century.
