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
