The Future Career Autobiography: A Narrative Measure of Career Intervention Effectiveness
Rehfuss, Mark C.
Career Development Quarterly, v58 n1 p82-90 Sep 2009
To be consistent with narrative career theory, effective career interventions should result in changes to individuals' occupational narratives over time. This exploratory study sought to present and examine the efficacy of the Future Career Autobiography (FCA), which is a narrative tool designed to identify and measure change or lack of change in individuals' occupational narratives over time. Undecided undergraduate students completed the FCA before and after a traditional career exploration course. The FCA seemed to measure both change and lack of change in occupational narratives, consistent with the career choice process and narrative theory. (Contains 1 table.)
