Transcript of Career Counseling Final Project

Target Population: College Graduates of Generation Y (those children born during the 1980s and early 1990s)
Target Population: College Graduates of Generation Y (those children born during the 1980s and early 1990s)
The Issue: Generation Y Graduates are not finding jobs in their field, getting out of the house, and starting a productive life, as they expected.
Demos, a public policy research firm, found that 18-34 year olds make up 45% of the unemployed.
NYTimes found that 1.5 million or 53.6% of bachelor degree-holders under 25 last year (2012) were unemployed or under employed.
Location matters: In Michigan, the jobless rate for recent college graduates is 13%, Oregon 10%, but in Alaska, only 2.4%
Kathryn Higgins, a recent college graduate, said, “my ultimate goal right now is just to get a full-time job that has benefits; I don’t care if it’s in my field."
The ten most underemployed Majors (from better to worse): Economics, English, Biology, Psychology, History, Liberal Arts, Anthropology, Drama/Theater Arts and Criminal Justice (tie), Business Administration and Management
So if a 4.0 isn't enough anymore,
what do Generation Y graduates
to get a job?
1. Personal Capital: Who you are!
Career belief inventory, Holland's assessment, Myers-Briggs test
2. Intellectual Capital: What you know!
The actual degree--learning the information that you set out to learn
3. Social Capital: Who you know!
linkedin.com, alumni associations, professional organizations, events, informational interviewing, student groups, blogs/websites, professors, conferences, etc.
4. Financial Capital: Who knows you know what you know!
linkedin vouching, references about skills, e-portfolio, CV; visualcv.com
Chaos Theory:
"Career challenges that are influenced by greater complexity, more chance event, and greater change than people experienced in the last century."
Career development is more likely to be influenced by unplanned events
Chaos Theory acknowledges the impact of change, uncertainty, and complexity in the career development process
Nonlinearity: "Small or seemingly trivial and unplanned events can have significant career implications
Sometimes changing everything changes nothing

The Life-Designing Model
21st Century approach
In the past: "loyal and dedicated workers could aspire to a job for the rest of their lives, and the organization would respond by offering job security"
"They are rooted in assumptions of stability of personal characteristics and secure jobs in bounded organizations. "
"Second, they conceptualize careers as a fixed sequence of stages."
Back to our previous question:
So if a 4.0 isn't enough anymore,
what do Generation Y graduates
to get a job?
Move in to the postmodern economy.
The new question for career counseling: "How may individuals best design their own lives in the human society in which they live?"
The future: "The assumption that aptitudes and interests are sufficient to succeed in a given job or training, and the belief that such requirements remain stable and predictable seem to be no longer true. "
The life-designing model provides individual with the ability to design and enact a career story that "supports adaptive and flexible responses to developmental tasks, vocational traumas, and occupational transitions."
