Tales of Two Subjects: Narratives of Career Counseling
Vilhjalmsdottir, Gudbjorg; Tulinius, Torfi H.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v75 n3 p267-274 Dec 2009
Narratives, often quite complex, are at the core of subjective careers. Tools and methodology have been adapted from narratology to analyze career stories thoroughly. This article presents four career counselors' narratives of client that have been analyzed with Greimas' actantial model and semiotic square. This methodology proves to be of value as it brings forth the main issues with which the client and the counselor are dealing. Furthermore, it gives the counselor a means to analyze and reflect on counseling practice. (Contains 1 figure.)
