A Career Decision-Making Study Based on Value Engineering
Alternative-focused thinking is conventionally recognized as the right way to make career decisions, which uses weighted mean to assess the better one. However, alternatives are relevant only because they are means to achieve values. With value-focused thinking (VFT), the authors advance decision-making values should be the primary focus of decision making rather than alternatives. VFT describes and illustrates concepts and procedures for creating better alternatives for career decision-making problems. This article articulates and uses one’s fundamental values to guide and integrate his/her career decision making activities. As a result, career decision-making study has new angle of views and explores many implicated techniques to understand a decision-making setting.
