In the information-rich post-pandemic employment environment, young people's career success is predicated on the extent to which they can apply career information to their career decision-making and career development learning processes. Taking heed of the critical importance of career information in career decision-making, the focus of the doctoral work presented in this poster is the identification of means of enhancing young people's career information literacy competencies. To this end, a mixed methods, sequential explanatory research design is employed in the research. The programme of research consists of two phases: a quantitative phase and a qualitative phase. In the quantitative phase, knowledge of the everyday career information behaviours of Scottish adolescents will be generated. In the qualitative phase, the career information literacy practices and current levels of career agency of young people will be explored. Once obtained, research findings can inform the development of a career information literacy framework.
