My Career Chapter is described as a semi-structured procedural model for narrative career counselling. The paper begins with the main theoretical underpinnings of the model, including the emphasis upon a dialogical perspective on career identity and narrative. The three phases of the model are outlined, beginning with the initial interview, followed by the writing of a career-related autobiographical manuscript, and finally the interpretation of the manuscript. As the first two stages are already articulated in the career counselling literature, in the paper the interpretation phase is addressed in
greater detail. Research evidence demonstrates a positive impact upon clients, however future research should address its hand-written and electronic administration, and use in languages other than English. The paper finishes with
recommendations for its use by clients and counsellors who prefer a semi-structured approach to narrative career
counselling, as distinct from open-ended unstructured approaches.
