Title Career guidance in a Fiji-context
Author(s) Nyqvist, Emilia ; Strålin, Therese

English abstract
Due to globalization and migration people and their cultures spread worldwide and career-guiding practitioners have to be more culturally considerate when they meet people. Our studies made in Fiji shows that there is a gap between thoughts regarding estimated income, education and effort in a workplace and actual labour-market conditions. Educated and qualified Fijians look for work abroad when they can’t find employment at home. One way to understand and describe what happens when people make career decisions is to use career or decision-making theories, and a way to work with career decisions and ideas about work is to have guidance-interviews or group sessions. The aim of this paper is to present an example of how a recognized interviewmodel might be adapted for career guidance in a Fiji-context and what considerations that have to be made, through the explanations offered by a career theory, a decisionmaking theory and a guidance theory. Based on the life-story of a group of Fijians the result showed that the main considerations were regarding social structures and conceptions of time.
