Putting Action Back into Action Planning: Experiences of Career Clients
Borgen, William A.; Maglio, Asa-Sophia T.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v44 n4 p173 Dec 2007
This study used the critical incident technique to investigate what helped and hindered unemployed and career-changing people in implementing the action plans they developed while participating in career or employment counseling. Information from interviews with 23 women and 16 men generated 9 categories of helping incidents and 9 categories of hindering incidents. These categories increase understanding of the nature of action planning and reveal implications for preparing clients to engage in action planning activities. (Contains 2 tables.)
