Career Development of Foreign Trained Immigrants from Regulated Professions
Novak, Lydia; Chen, Charles P.
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v13 n1 p5-24 Mar 2013
In this article, we aim to examine and understand the career development experiences of foreign-trained immigrants from regulated professions (FTIRPs) in Canada. To provide some background on immigration in a Canadian context, we focus on a myriad of factors that affect the vocational well-being of FTIRPs. We apply key concepts from several major career development theories to FTIRPs, proposing some general helping strategies intended to empower this population in managing and developing their careers in a new world of work in their host country.
