Career Writing

“Faces” detail by M. Hiske

Reinekke and Frans’s contribution of career writing holds a unique position in the burgeoning literature on narrative career counselling. It provides a means for individuals to situate themselves within an inner narrative by means of a creative, reflective and expressive career intervention. Importantly, it is adaptable for group as well as individual work.

Career Writing is a narrative approach to career guidance and counselling. It makes use of creative, expressive and reflective writing exercises to promote self-awareness and self-direction. The method is well researched, has strong theoretical foundations and many enjoyable and inspiring exercises. It is usually done in a group setting facilitated by a trained instructor.

Reinekke’s Career Cards are a good tool for beginning professionals.
