Career counseling can be thought of in at least three ways: one, as a single intervention that can assist clients with career behavior, issues, and problems; second, as a process that is overarching and includes various interventions that can be combined in different configurations to support the career counseling process and the needs of a given client; and third, as a continuum of career counseling and related interventions that make up a subspecialty within the general class of counseling (Gysbers, Heppner, & Johnston, 2003). This continuum responds to a wide-range of content that clients bring to career counselors, such as situational and personal dilemmas, unemployment, underemployment, job dissatisfaction, relationship problems with co-workers or supervisors, inadequate work skills, and family conflicts related to work.
