When faced with the specific task of choosing a career, many young people realise for the first time that they are responsible for their own lives. This article proposes the concept that young people should assume responsibility for their own employment biography as a specific orientation service to precede career choice so that this challenge can theoretically be addressed. It formulates pedagogical action criteria for the development of responsibility for employment biographies and shows examples of how digital provision can be used in the interests of achieving a sustainable pedagogical relationship during the transition.
