The role of career surveys: identifying issues and evaluating practice, IN Journal of the National Institute for Career Education and Counselling, No 41 Oct 2018, pp18-25

Examines the role of career surveys in informing and evaluating career interventions and support, drawing on the results of two surveys of early career doctors conducted 13 years apart. Explains that career surveys explore in much greater detail than employee attitude surveys individuals' experiences of career and development issues. Outlines career advice and training provided to doctors and the two surveys carried out in 2001 and 2014. Presents and discusses key findings relating to: satisfaction with training and career support; career issues in medical training; the changing medical workforce and implications for training and careers; sources and career support; and career knowledge and how career support is delivered. Indicates that medical students and doctors in training were considerably more satisfied with career support received in 2014 compared with 2001.
