I’m Tristram Hooley. I am a careers expert and am available for comment, editorial and opinion pieces, speaking opportunities and other things that interest me.
I’m interested in career, career development, career guidance and career education. I’m also interested in social science research methods, learning technology and plenty more besides. I post about all of this stuff on this blog.
I am Chief Research Officer, Institute of Student Employers; Professor II, Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences; Professor of Career Education at the International Centre for Guidance Studies, University of Derby; Visiting Professor at Canterbury Christ Church University; a fellow of NICEC; and a Winston Churchill Fellow.
I am a member of the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling and have edited one special issue of the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling and two of the NICEC journal. I review for the British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, Industry and Higher Education, the London Review of Education and the Journal of Teaching in International Business.
I am available to supervise or examine doctorates. I am currently supervising doctoral work on:
- The career journeys of graduates from Orkney and Shetland
- Careers, career guidance and the gig economy
- Career identity in Norway
- Graduate career transitions and social media
Researchers that I have supervised have completed theses on the following subjects.
- Business leaders: Career capital and role transitions
- Communities that care: an insight into male career patterns in a small neighbourhood
- How teachers conceive their role when working with Generation Z pupils in a technological learning environment
- Parental involvement in career education and guidance in senior general secondary schools in the Netherlands
- Youth mentoring across professional settings: a pedagogic approach to social inclusion
I have examined seven doctoral theses (2 PhD and 5 professional doctorates).
