There is a trend in the field of career counselling which focuses on making use of qualitative information for the purpose of planning one’s future. The Career Interest Profile (CIP) does just that in the form of a structured interview which provides valuable information to do so. It aims to identify career interests by being narrative in nature and a life-story supplement aids in determining main interests so that the best possible career can be decided on.

“Given that few decisions in life are as important as the choice of career, it is essential to take every conceivable step to assess those factors that predict success in a career as best we can” – Prof Kobus Maree

While this webinar will focus on both the theory and development of the MCM, a case study will also be included to illustrate basic application principles of the tool in order to facilitate better understanding of its use.”

Kobus Maree is a Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Pretoria and Registrar of the South African Career Development Association. His main research interests focus on career construction (counselling), life design (counselling), emotional-social intelligence and social responsibility, and learning facilitation in mathematics.

He is the founding editor of the African Journal of Career Development. Past editor of the South African Journal of Psychology, managing editor of Gifted Education International and regional editor for Southern Africa: Early Child Development and Care.

Prof Maree is a member of several national and international bodies, including the Society for Vocational Psychology, the International Association of Applied Psychology, the Psychological Society of South Africa (SA), and the Association of Science of South Africa.
