Abstract: Developments in economy, education and living standards have radically changed the way we percieve and pursue careers today. For instance, where before, finding a good job and settling down were considered the hallmarks of a good career, today the emphasis is on doing what makes you happy or fulfilled. These changes pose several implications on the practice of career guidance and counselling. The aim of this chapter is to stimulate innovative thinking and practice in the area of career guidance and counselling on a local level. The first part outlines, with the help of a case study, the differences between old and new career pathways. This, of course, suggests new emphases and actions for the career counsellor and other related career workers. These will be briefly discussed and a new model for career guidance and counselling will be proposed. Following this a guide for innovative career guidance and counselling is presented.
