This article presents an analysis of current career theory and practice around the globe. It briefly describes important changes that are impacting working life and considers how these changes have prompted innovations in career counselling theory and practice. Innovations and emerging developments in career theory include constructivism, systems theory, action theory, and a series of fragmentary theoretical developments that highlight the importance of paradoxical thinking. In terms of career counselling practice, some of the new developments include a greater emphasis on active engagement, more holistic methods, an expanded counselling focus, and an increased emphasis on counselling efficacy. These developments present new opportunities and challenges for career counselling theorists and practitioners.
