Absrcinal Market Monthly   2 “Career Crafting the Decade After High School”   Recent work by Cathy Campbell, PhD, in partnership with the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) has confronted the “Career Myth” that people will follow a predictable pathway from high school, to post-secondary education and training, and then into permanent  jobs. The lack of evidence to support this path is the source of great anxiety in youth in Canada. This results in poor decision-making and even procrastination among young adults in the decade after high school. In reality, career pathways do not often work out in an expected linear fashion. This publication is easy to read and will help dispel the myths of career development, easing the anxiety of choosing a career. Chapter Six is especially useful, giving practical strategies for crafting a career in an ever-changing world.
