This paper will review changing definitions and processes of career guidance, and will emphasise the need for a renewed approach in education and psychology programs to prepare graduates for career service provision. It will present this argument within the emerging context where a new relationship between career guidance and public policy is fostering a significant array of government interventions in the provision of career services. These initiatives have significantly increased the urgency of this agenda.
