Today I’m participating in a symposium at #BERA2017. In it I’m going to be discussing the terminology that we use when talking about career and career guidance. I’m going to argue that seeking alternative terminology is not helpful as it leads us into an endless round of renaming things but doesn’t really address the concerns that people have with concepts like career and career guidance. Instead we need to spend more time on defining what we mean and using the discussion of definitions as a way to expand people’s conceptual understanding and career thinking.
This is what I thought I would cover.
