The 3-I Career Advising Process and Athletes with Foreclosed Identity
Menke, Donna J.
NACADA Journal, v35 n1 p22-28 2015
Student-athletes who identify more strongly with their athletic role than their academic life may neither encounter nor embrace the chance to explore career options. Their lack of exposure or interest to career advising may compound career immaturity and development. Gordon's (2006) 3-I (inquire, inform, integrate) decision-making process applied to career guidance may help advisors encourage professional development and personal growth among student-athletes. Integrating knowledge of self with academic information requires engagement in the inquiry and information gathering stages of the fluid 3-I cycle, which may contribute to greater career maturity, especially for the identity-foreclosed student-athlete.
