Career guidance is fundamental to help adults successfully navigate a constantly evolving labor market through advice and information on job and training opportunities. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of career guidance services, but compared to these services for youth, adults receive relatively little policy attention, and little is known of how often existing services are used. This report describes initiatives in the area of career guidance for adults in OECD countries, drawing lessons on how to strengthen adult career guidance systems in terms of coverage and inclusiveness, provision and service delivery, quality and impact, and governance and funding. The findings build on results of the 2020 Survey of Career Guidance for Adults (SCGA), an online survey of adults’ experience with career guidance.
This book is based on the Life Design paradigm and discusses the efforts made to overcome the matching between individuals and their work contexts. Starting from the evolution of career counselling and vocational guidance in the 20th century and then following the more updated reflections in the paradigm, this book discusses research results from the Larios Laboratory (Padova, Italy) in collaboration with numerous international colleagues and institutions. This book reveals how trajectories can be created from one's own mission, realized with the help of others and newly acquired strengths. It shows how career counselling and vocational designing can help people to build their own future from an inclusive and sustainable perspective, based on social justice, and to help build a better future for all.

An important feature of the book is its emphasis on promoting a creative and innovative approach to career counselling so as to better answer contemporary career-related questions.
