The locally developed CIP v6 and its narrative, life-story supplement helps learners and young adults identify their main interests in order to assist them in deciding which careers will best suit them. To accomplish this, respondents are guided to first find out what their specific talents and preferences are. In order to meet this aim the CIP v6 incorporates both the questionnaire and narrative supplement in one easy to use format.

An instructional two-DVD set (3 hours) entitled ‘A Guide to Reflective Career Counselling’ demonstrates how to use the CIP v6 to facilitate career construction counselling. During this process, clients are gently guided to reflect and meta-reflect on their own career-related responses. The described strategy should provide career counsellors with a guide to help clients not only choose ‘appropriate’ careers, but more importantly, advance their unfinished stories through constructing themselves and using their careers to design and live successful lives.
