Case Study – Career Intervention Plan: Part I
Note that this section of the written assignment pertains to the Week 6 Written Assignment Case Study. The feedback you receive will assist you in completing your final Case Study.
Your client, Julie Brown, is seeking career counseling to help her decide what direction to take in her career. She was recently laid off from a full-time position as a counseling assistant at a local community college. As part of her responsibilities in that job, Julie worked at the front desk of the counseling center. She was the first contact to students, answering basic questions and signing students in to see counselors. She conveyed to you that she absolutely loved her job. Prior to working as a counseling assistant, she worked part time as a test proctor, while earning her Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from Fresno State University. Julie visited the career center while in college. Her Keirsey Temperament Type is Idealist. Her Holland code is Social. Her Myers-Briggs Typology Indicator is Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving (ENFP). Julie has indicated that she wants to consider three career paths before making a final decision. She is open to working full time and attending school at night or working part time while attending school full time. While she prefers personal interactions to virtual communication, she has indicated that online schooling is an option.
Utilizing the Case Study example of Julie Brown and your experience taking Holland’s assessment last week, discuss Julie’s results on the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II and Holland’s code. Write a 1050- to 1400-word (3- to 4-page) paper, not including the title and references pages, evaluating the instruments and analyzing Julie’s results while addressing the following:
- Background on the Keirsey Temperament Sorter II and Holland’s code
- What does Julie’s Keirsey temperament type indicate about her personality? What types of potential career fields would she benefit from most and why?
- What does Julie’s Holland code indicate about her work personality and related careers? Is this in alignment with her Keirsey temperament results?
- Based on Julie’s Keirsey temperament type and her Holland’s code, explore the O’Net website and locate and describe at least three career options that would be appropriate. To access the O’Net Occupational Handbook, see the instructions in your required readings for this week. What types of educational requirements, if any, are necessary and do they align with her preferences? Discuss the prospective salary, workforce needs, growth potential, and any other pertinent information available for the specific occupations that you selected.
Use a minimum of four scholarly sources in addition to the course text in your paper.
