  • Abstract:

    This article reports on the value of career construction counselling for a woman who was undecided about the career she should follow. The participant was purposefully selected from a number of people taking part in a career construction counselling course. An intrinsic, single case study design was adopted on the basis of a qualitative, interpretive paradigm. The Career Construction Interview (CCI) was used to collect qualitative data, and Savickas’s eight-step strategy was followed to complete the participant’s life portrait. The results suggest that the intervention helped the participant clarify and resolve her career indecision. Future research should focus on the use of this intervention in different contexts and on its longer term impact.
