Career counselling is a relatively young field that started in the private sector in the Netherlands just forty years ago. At the time the field was called "outplacement", however, now it is part of the broader concept of career advice. Few had heard of "outplacement" at the time, let alone career advice. The question was often asked whether such guidance would contribute to making people function better, communicate more effectively, or help improve their relationship with their working environment. This dissertation scientifically demonstrates that career counselling is not simply "hot air." For more than 20 years, scientists have suspected that satisfaction with career counselling is very high in both the short and medium term (over 8 on a scale of 1 - 10). This is scientifically proven only in this thesis. The dissertation shows that career counseling makes an important contribution to guiding clients to a new suitable job.
