Abstract

This chapter focuses on the value of using career counselling to support the transition of veterans back into the civilian workforce. We provide a brief theoretical overview of career counselling orientations as well as a summary description of its application with a client (“Chris”). Our case study demonstrates the utility of psychological testing as an assessment tool, as part of Kidd’s (2003, 2006) second stage of career counselling: enabling client’s understanding. Our case study also describes the use of the Occupational Interests Profile+ as a basis for discussion with the client, along with career recommendations based on a combination of a career history interview and interpretation of the results from the psychometric test.
