Abstract

Clients present for career counseling with an array of career concerns. A single career theory may prove necessary, but insufficient, in addressing these concerns. Career construction theory (CCT; Savickas, 2005) assists individuals with career decision making by integrating 3 different viewpoints of vocational behavior. This article explains how to use CCT in career counseling, focusing on the area of sales and office and administrative support occupations. Labor statistics and growth projections are described, and a case study relating CCT to these occupational areas is provided.
