The study of career, that is, the study of contingency. Maanen & Schein.1977;
Because of the curriculum of the career planner, it will always be questioned. If you want to understand the subject more systematically, what books can I read? Can you recommend a career planner’s basic list?
After answering hundreds of times, just put it here.
If you don’t want to use career skills as a skill to help yourself or others develop better, you don’t have to look down. I bet there are few books you can read, let alone use them. If you want to learn systematically, you can follow the following ideas to make you learn more effectively.
1. Getting started with popular books
▌The first book: “Lucky is not accidental”
In today’s society, we all have to face uncertainties that cannot be eliminated. How can we seize the unexpected things outside of “planning” and use our chances to achieve ourselves? This is an issue that every contemporary person needs to think about. The so-called planning is dead, the survival of the fittest. exactly. Career Master Klumbs (the book translated as Krupp) used his life to study in the field of career decisions and dealing with uncertain learning (cybernetics), and turned it into a storybook telling you that luck is no accident.
If you can’t find this version, you can find another Chinese version of “Forever Believe, Lucky Things Are Coming Soon”.
The second book: “What is the possibility of your life?”
The author does not need to introduce it? I don’t know if I ask my mother to go.
You can have any different opinions from the academic to the application point of view, but it is undeniable that it is the new elite career founded by the classical, which has promoted the career of the students in the country in the past few years and let Many people realize that career planning skills are one of the “essential skills of the workplace” in the future.
This book covers the core content of the localization research practice of the new elite career.
2, a textbook to see the whole picture
▌ third: “Professional Counseling Psychology”
This is a good textbook that basically covers the classic theory of a hundred years of career history, allowing you to examine the career path of people and the application of career counseling in the macro perspective of social and organizational development.
Translator Professor Shi Jing is a professor and doctor of the School of Management of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is an important researcher in this field. This book is also said to be a general textbook for vocational education in many colleges and universities in the United States. It is not only a must-read for career planners, but also a good book for business managers, college employment guidance teachers, and human resource managers.
▌ Fourth: Career Development and Planning
Don’t look at the authors of this book, you think they are passers-by A road man B. If you have heard and learned CIP cognitive information processing theory, you should know that several of them are the pioneers of this school. In addition, I would like to introduce the translator of this book, Teacher Hou Zhiwei of Beijing Normal University. She is the leading figure in the domestic career academic field. The books she translated, you can find them.
Some career planners think that this theory is nothing, but if you really understand it, you will know that it provides a set of frameworks for identifying career problems (CIP pyramid model) and solving career problems and career choices. Process (CASVE cycle). I must read the books recommended by my supervisor’s counselor.
▌The fifth book: Career Development Theory
This is also a good textbook. It introduces the development and direction of career theory from different angles, and it is convenient for you to understand the core of each career theory from multiple angles. Since it is a textbook, there must be a lot of overlap with the theoretical discourse in the previous book. However, different textbooks written by different careerologists are more contrastive and more reflective. This is a good way to deepen theoretical study.
3, chasing a master classic
▌ sixth book: Career Counseling and Coaching
This book is a classic work by a famous Chinese career scientist, Jin Shuren, who enjoys an international reputation. The book is clear but not blind, but it is selected from the most widely used classical theory, and incorporates the localization research experience of the teacher’s own decades of study.
If you are a career planner and have not read this book (several times), you are embarrassed to say that you are a practitioner in this line. The study of career is only a classic, it is none other than it.
Jin Shuren’s teacher has another good work that shows his education and consulting skills, such as Deep Play (currently only Taiwanese version), and it is worthy of a fine product. When you have enough consulting experience to read it, you will come up with the philosophy and art of consulting.
▌: Career Consulting
If you read the book of Master Jin Shuren carefully, it is not difficult to construct from him. The chapter of the doctrine of theory found the author of the book, Mark Savickas, master of career construction theory. Savicos is a master of career narrative research and practice, so the book is thin but inspiring.
The book condenses career coaching into a process of deconstruction, reconstruction, and co-construction, summarizing a set of techniques for interviewing career stories, through seemingly simple five questions (model role, leisure activities, likes Interviews with the story, motto, early memories, etc., constructing a career story of the visitor, and promoting visitors to make more integrated career choices.
I often use the narrative techniques of Savicos, Ke Kelun, and Mike White (and I worship him) in counseling and supervision. I have witnessed the warmth of career narratives brought to the visitors by my own practice. A powerful change.
However, without the foundation of postmodern construction theory, understanding its essence may be a bit difficult.
If you are interested in learning about social constructivism, you can read the “Invitation of Social Construction” and “Social Construction in Context” by constructivist master Kenneth Guggen. More fierce people can go to Michel Foucault and Derrida and other postmodern philosophers to find abuse.
4. Controversy of Constructivism
▌The eighth book: Narrative-Oriented Career Consultation
With the rise of postmodernism, narrative methods based on the postmodern constructivist paradigm have also entered the field of career. In addition to the above-mentioned Savicus’ Career Consultation, this Larry Cochran’s Narrative-Oriented Career Consultation is also an important work in the field of career narrative.
It is homologous to the narrative treatment school philosophy in the field of psychotherapy, but the perspectives and methods are different. If you don’t want to fall into the vast sea of narrative treatment, reading a career narrative will be beneficial.
▌ ninth: “Building a Solution”
In addition to career narrative, the short-term focus on solving this school can also expand your Consultation ideas and methods. The author of this book, Xu Weisu from Taiwan, is a founder of the short-focus school of this school (Insoo K. Berg & Steve De Shazer), a pioneer in Chinese research and practice. The author has integrated himself for more than 20 years. Experience, a comprehensive display of the context, ideas, and technology of this school. Let you see the goals, exceptions, and the power behind a small step.
The tenth book: From coach to wake-up
Coaching technology is known to more people in China before career planning. Especially in the enterprise has been widely used. There are a lot of good books in this field, just to introduce a leak. This book is from the coaching technical master Robert Diltz. Perhaps the logical level of coaching you have heard stems from his creation. This book is also detailed. In addition, the book translator Huang Xuejia is also the earliest research and practice coaching technology in China.
If you are interested in the methods in this area, remember these three masters. Finding their book slowly is:
