To date, academics, practitioners and students in South Africa interested in career psychology have had to rely largely on textbooks from the US and Europe. However, politics, economics and prevailing social conditions have had a major influence on the nature, form and direction of this field in South Africa, and while many of these are excellent references, they understandably focus on issues relevant to their own environment. Career psychology in the South African context examines historical and state-of-the-art career practices in career psychology, particularly in relation to conditions in this country. Career psychology in the South African context provides descriptive and critical analyses of career theories and current thought on career development, referring to many published articles both in South Africa and abroad. It gives a South African perspective on the process of career choice, and considers which aspects of overseas practice can be applied locally and which aspects require further research. Additional chapters in this edition include life design, unemployment and the influence of poverty on career choice. Career psychology in the South African context is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as career practitioners, psychologists, educationists and teacher-counsellors.

Secondly, it was motivated by the increased emphasis on career counselling in training institutions. The contributors collectively meld traditional and contemporary traditions in the field of career counselling in this accessible, hands-on text that can be used to design the future lives of persons of all ages.
How can coaches help clients navigate the changing world of work? This book offers a step-by-step, practical guide to running a complete career coaching programme: assessing the present; looking at motivation, skills and 'personal brand'; writing the most powerful CV/resume; getting through a job interview or assessment centre successfully; and negotiating terms for a new job. Career coaching has never been needed more now that jobs for life have disappeared, being made redundant is common, the 'gig economy' is here to stay, and young people often must start in unpaid roles. The principles of career coaching are much the same whether you are a professional executive coach or a volunteer working for a charity whose aim is to get people back into work. But how do you do it most effectively? The focus must be on the whole career coaching cycle and building a holistic understanding of how a client's personal and professional life has influenced the person they are today, who they want to be, and how to set successful goals. Important reading for any coach who wants to understand and improve their career coaching. "This is a must-have resource for all coaches to support clients in career and job transition." Terry H.
