This guide dispels the “Career Myth” that those in their late teens and 20s should follow a linear, predictable route from high school to post-secondary training, and then on to permanent, full-time jobs. Straightforward and accessible, the guide provides practical counsel and effective tools that professionals can use to help reduce young adults’ anxiety and to assist them to take action in the face of uncertainty.

Backed by current scholarship and based on a study of the experiences of young people in the decade after graduating from high school, Career Crafting offers a powerful and insightful portrait of the early career journeys that young adults undertake, told in their own words.

Eight Career Crafting Techniques are introduced that integrate chaos-friendly approaches to career counselling that emphasize the fluidity of young people’s career journeys with more traditional ones.
