Career Development Theories




Career Development Theories
Joe is a 12th-grade boy who is having problems identifying his career goals. Joe is
stressed and feels tremendous pressure connected to career development. Joe is academically
smart since he is on the honors roll. Additionally, he is exceptional in the areas of mathematics,
history, and art subjects. Joe has a passion for art and photography. Recently he joined the debate
club in order to please his parents who want him to become a lawyer. His parents are lawyers
and have a law firm which they hope Joe will take over soon after graduating from law school.
Joe wants to go to art school although he has enrolled for a traditional 4-year program. To better
understand how to guide Joe, there is a need to assess the methods applicable to Joe's case in
respect to the career development theories, the decision-making skills of the client, the
vocational skills, the support network, and the development of short-term goals.
According to the theories of career development, Joe's problems began when he chose to
follow what his parents what. Joe is artistic and enjoys art and photography classes. Additionally,
he wants to go to art school. This matches Joe with John Holland’s Typology (Zunker, 2006).
The vocational interest of Joe is based on his personality which in this case is artistic. By
entering the path that his parents are planning for him, Joe feels confused and unsatisfied and as
such is unable to make a clear decision on the next step to take in order to fulfill his career needs.
Joe is seeking an area that would allow him to express his interests and attitudes which is in art
and photography.



For Joe, I will use the prescriptive decision-making model. Under this model, the client
will have to look at the specifics of the situation in which they are in and the needs that the client
has to meet. This is basically looking at what Joe should do and what Joe can do. Under this
model, Joe will seek to find knowledge behind his problem by having an incentive for solving
the problem...
