The Resume's Secret Identity: A Tool for Narrative Exploration in Multicultural Career Counseling
Toporek, Rebecca L.; Flamer, Cliff
Journal of Employment Counseling, v46 n1 p4 Mar 2009
The resume can be a window into the life story of a client and help address barriers to work and life success. Using the resume as a narrative tool, career counselors can address these barriers and increase clients' employment potential. The strength of this approach is its cultural relevance to clients who may not otherwise seek counseling and as a talking tool within counseling. This article explores the potential for the resume development and refinement process to enhance the counseling process akin to narrative career counseling. A model and case example are provided to illustrate the application of this approach. (Contains 1 table.)
