This chapter proposes an emancipatory and transformative purpose of career guidance in the life of each person. Two broad factors that have an impact upon career guidance perspectives throughout the world are considered and are described as (a) individual and vocational factors; and (b) guidance delivery factors. The first section of this paper considers the background of career guidance as a basis for understanding the perspectives that already had an impact upon it. Then selected social and international perspectives relevant to career guidance are considered jointly as part of the existential issues facing each person and each practitioner.
