An essential component of career development is action-oriented hope. Without action-oriented hope, persons are not likely to engage in career planning activities. Despite the importance of action-oriented hope in career development, few theories address the topic explicitly. The action-oriented hope-centered model of career development addresses this gap. In this article, we describe this model and provide an illustrative case study to help readers understand how the model can be applied in career counseling.
