The paper contains three chapters. Chapter 1 deals with history of career counselling; Chapter 2 starts with exploring the causes of the changing concept of career; its first subchapter depicts legal environment of career counselling in Slovakia, and the second one deals with conditions for providing counselling services in relation to tasks of education, while the conditions for providing counselling are analysed on the basis of own research data on the cooperation between educational institutions and enterprises and on methods of studying labour market developments. The focus of Chapter 3 is on the role of institutions providing counselling in Slovakia (employment offices, clubs of work, and other special-purpose facilities).
