Career Practitioners' Conceptions of Competency for Social Media in Career Services
Kettunen, Jaana; Sampson, James P., Jr.; Vuorinen, Raimo
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v43 n1 p43-56 2015
This article reports findings from a phenomenographic investigation into career practitioners' understanding of competency for social media in career services. Sixteen Danish and Finnish practitioners with experience using social media in career services were interviewed in focus groups. Competency for social media in career services was conceived as (i) an ability to use social media for delivering information, (ii) an ability to use social media for delivering career services, (iii) an ability to utilise social media for collaborative career exploration and (iv) an ability to utilise social media for co-careering. The findings can be used to develop pre-service and in-service training of career practitioners and support for the deepening of their competency, using the critical aspects that were identified.
