The process of a career decision-making has becoming more complex due to constant changes in professional world. In short periods of time, new occupations appear and disappear; many times more briefly than classic graduations. In response to this scenery, new methodological resources to sustain significant choices are significant. This study aimed to comprehend a group of young high school student's experience which has been powered by Focusing. A qualitative method of narratives and meaning versions was applied in order to grasp those participants. Focusing seemed to be a method able to increase people's contact with themselves and, because of that, amplified the decision making process.
