This work aims to present the emerging challenge of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for career development in vocational guidance and career counseling. Based on the new paradigm for the 21st century, Life Designing Counseling, the use of ICT is suggested as favoring flexible and dynamic career construction processes. Various instruments for career counseling online are presented, the theme of accessibility is discussed in terms of cost/effectiveness of career service to prevent the risk of unintentional social injustice and to favor a greater correspondence between career services and the needs of individuals. This work permits an in depth study of the complexity of ICT, with the aims of understanding its opportunities and limits, offering new perspectives in research and intervention.
Keywords: ICT, career development, vocational guidance, career counseling.
