Why a social justice informed approach to career guidance matters in the time of coronavirus

I’ve just published a new post on the Career Guidance for Social Justice blog which I’ve co-authored with Ronald Sultana and Rie Thomsen. In the post we discuss how the coronavirus is shaping our careers and argue that governments need to recognise that now is a critical time to support career guidance, because people’s careers are being critically disrupted by the virus.

We go on to argue, that managing a crisis is not enough. Career guidance also has to help people to understand the way in which politics and power are shaping the post-coronavirus world. In such a situation, we need to be thinking about how we can make the new normal a more just, humane and sustainable world.
