Throughout her 30 years in the career development sector, Professor Neary has worked as a practitioner, trainer, lecturer, consultant, manager, and researcher. Each of these roles has contributed to the formation of her identity as a careers professional and her passion for career guidance and the difference it can make to people‚Äôs lives.  

Over the last three decades, she has observed the professionalisation, de-professionalisation and re-professionalisation of the workforce. This turbulence has contributed to and informed her research interests focusing on the career development workforce. This research has helped to highlight the factors that have contributed to both deconstructing and shaping professional identity within the sector.

In her lecture she will draw on her various roles to examine the challenges that have impacted on the careers profession and how her research has helped to develop a greater understanding of the workforce, their motivations and challenges experienced. She will explore the interrelationship between practice, research, policy and identity and what needs to be in place to maximise the opportunities for the next professionalisation project.
