The field of career development is grounded in diverse sociological perspectives contributing to addressing the complex interplay between individuals and societal contexts. This paper advocates for the use of a third space concept from cultural sociology traditions to working with marginalised clients and developing culturally sensitive career interventions. Applying this generative concept to constructivist career counselling, the relationship between counsellor and client is conceptualised as a productive boundary zone of an intercultural dialogue, which occurs in a broader environmental-societal system and advances the use of Systems Theory Framework of career development.
