Based on findings from a qualitative study of 100 adults aged 23-30 from across Canada, this session focuses on how chaos and complexity theory can help us understand the often circuitous and unpredictable pathways followed by many high school graduates. Six career design principles will be discussed that can assist counsellors to engage young people in the process of career planning that is proactive, while acknowledging that career pathways may change in response to many different internal and external factors.
