Using My Career Chapter with a Malaysian engineer to write and tell a career story

McIlveen, Peter (2016) Using My Career Chapter with a Malaysian engineer to write and tell a career story. In: Postmodern career counseling. A Handbook of culture, context, and cases. American Counseling Association, Alexandria, VA., pp. 105-117. ISBN 1556203586


Stories are universal. Cultures include stories; cultures are stories—incomplete stories, always evolving. Every person has a story; a person is a story—an incomplete story, always evolving. At their confluence, the stories of cultures manifest through individuals, and individuals express themselves through the stories of their cultures. As such, one is a story of the other, with each reflecting on the other. Indeed, on this planet, there are 7 billion stories and counting, incomplete and evolving, as diverse as all the peoples on Earth, yet somehow very similar to one another. How these many stories are told, heard, and created is very much the domain of counseling.
