Using "The Career Decision Self-Efficacy Scale...can be used to assess a person's beliefs concerning her or his capabilities to take the steps in career decision making" (Betz 2004:5). Ideally, treating issues related to a lack of self-efficacy requires a two-pronged approach. Firstly, the counselor must help the client unburden him or herself of specific concepts of a lack of self-efficacy related to career skills and goals -- but there also must be a more general component of raising the client's self-esteem and efficacy that is essential to fully realize the individual's maximum potential in the workforce. Of course, self-efficacy is often significantly related to vocational interest, but when the two do not mesh, it is essential that the counselor help them to do so, and ideally help persons explore unexpected areas of talent (Guidon & Richards 2005:16).

No matter how intelligent a person is and how successful he can be, there are many reasons for him to choose a career not really worthy of his talents.

From the list of personal dimensions of development produced by the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (Arredondo et al., 1996), gender is the dimension most neglected or ignored, in spite of the fact that gender intersects with all other dimensions across cultures (see Hansen, Gama, & Harkins, 2002). Whether internal or external, one major weakness is the need to motivate more counselor educators to value career counseling and to

Sixth, I look at Alex's vocational personality. I do this by looking at her stories through with Holland's RIASEC hexagon. Using this tool I see that she most resembles the Enterprising type (Holland's Theory of Career Choice and You, 2009).

Career Counseling and Multicultural Students in School-to-Work Transition Good career counseling always takes place within a cultural context, which is true regardless of ethnicity.
