This webinar considered the competences which career professionals need to do an effective job. In doing so it asked what is considered effective as a career intervention. This in turn lead to questions about the nature and purpose of career support in the current economic and social context. It argued that the career workforce across Europe comprises a number of professional roles (CEDEFOP, 2009) with some variation in specialist know-how. It concluded, nevertheless, that professionalism (NICE, 2012) is the common factor which binds the careers workforce in its practice.

The webinar was organised by the National Centre for Lifelong Guidance Expertise (eVOKES, http://www.evokes.fi/) at the Finnish Institute for Educational Research, University of Jyväskylä, in co-operation with the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network, ELGPN (http://elgpn.eu), and the International Association for Vocational and Educational Guidance, IAEVG (http://www.iaevg.org).
