Abstract/Summary Qualitative career assessment is a form of appraisal that supports the construction of personal meaning from career-related experiences. Grounded in constructivist approaches to counselling, qualitative assessments actively involve participants, and yield rich data to promote deeper understanding of career situations. They are most effective when embedded in a dynamic process of mutual engagement between counsellor and client, and when chosen to reflect the learning styles of clients. This chapter outlines a selection of qualitative career assessment to demonstrate a range of instruments, processes and techniques. A case study illustrates how such assessments may be incorporated into a career counselling process and applied at different times according to the way the process unfolds.
