Key Roles in the Revolution of Work.
At the height of the work revolution and its great social challenges, career development and employment counseling specialists have essential key roles to play in order to support the socioeconomic growth of our community. This book suggests four pro-active key roles for the profession. This recommendation is based on research conducted over the past decade with 1,500 adult workers facing career transition. These key roles, which are relevant to working with individuals or groups, include: counselor of being-doing link; counselor in real and virtual career; counselor in managing vocational chaos; and a role encompassing broadly the counselor in the social guidance of work. This paper is addressed to all career development and employment counseling specialists. It encourages them to be more directly involved in macro sociopolitical decisions. It also endeavors to guide them to be more efficient and relevant in their delivery of services to clients in today's work revolution. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/MKA)
