An international discussion about cross-cultural career assessment

Career assessments are a common resource used by career practitioners internationally to help inform individuals’ career decision-making. Research on the topic of cross-cultural career assessment has been mostly limited to the applicability of an established inventory to a different culture.

The purpose of this paper is to summarize the existing research on cross-cultural assessment, and to indicate a need for collaboration among career development associations with respect to the value and use of career assessments, using current ethical standards as a springboard for determining common ground and perhaps a joint statement about the value of career assessments.
