"It can be easy to find a job but it’s not easy to pursue a career"
The quote above comes from an Armed Forces Family Federation partner/spouse survey participant.
This session will therefore explore how the role of career guidance/development practitioners is key in that shift from survive (job) to thrive (career) in the dynamic world of work.
Protean career is defined as a career where the individual is experiencing greater responsibility for their career
choices and career opportunities. The core values of protean career are freedom and growth, and subjective
career success is recognized as the main success criteria (Hall, 1976).
The session will reflect on the Protean career development theory in changing labour market forces (Protean – adjective Greek mythology), and in doing so share the Scottish approach to career guidance; the stages of career management skills learning; the concept of agency; our consideration of career management skills learning in guidance engagements when everyone’s journey is unique; and the strive for practitioner artistry where practitioners adopt parallel responses that adapt and evolve to enable our individuals to access and exploit opportunities. In doing this we can recognise that the exploration and learning of career management skills has shifted career development to being a central part of life and not a crisis point intervention.
