This study examines how video career stories of senior staff in an international organization affects career planning by newly recruited staff. The research questions are: (1) by watching these video stories, do newly recruited staff change their attitude or action plan? (2) If so, how? (3) What are in the videos that trigger the change? 14 staff participated in an online video survey, which included pre-test, video watching and post-test. The responses were analyzed with a qualitative approach. The result shows that new staff’s career action plans become more concrete and specific, though their career goals hardly change, and that video stories are more effective for those at career-launching stage than for those in “settling-in” stage.
