How to Help Emerging Adults Develop their Career and Design Their Lives in an Age of Uncertainty?

Abstract : In the context of liquid modernity, vocational issues are much broader and more difficult than earlier as they imply an ongoing reflection on the meaning of one's own life in the purpose of designing it. Everyone is perceived as owning a certain capital of various competencies on which he/she can rely to cope with such a task. This capital varies greatly from one individual to another, depending on their genders, social or ethnic origins, the school organizations they were educated in, the societies where they live, etc. Three kinds of interventions can be offered to help individuals design and construct their careers and lives-information, guidance, and counseling-which may be differentiated according to the importance of the reflection on themselves they request from clients.
