Introduction. In the last few years, the vocational guidance of adolescents has again become one of the most relevant issues in the psychological and pedagogical discourse. Its quality, however, continues to depend to a greater extent on the individual qualifications of the career consultant and does not guarantee its effective application. In this regard, the study aims to develop a new PROF.Navigator technology for vocational guidance, which offers a more objective, technological, and effective approach.

Materials and methods. The object of the study is career guidance as a technology for supporting professional self-determination of adolescents. The study examined the main types of technologies used, identified two leading Russian technologies for individual career guidance, and provided their comparative analysis. Based on the analysis, the proprietary PROF. Navigator career guidance technology was developed, and then tested for 8 years in the Irkutsk region.

Results. The paper proposes a PROF.Navigator technology for career guidance and shows its distinctive features and advantages, including a problematizing questionnaire about teenagers’ readiness to choose a profession, determination of their individual typological features by the method of socionic diagnostics, examination of teenagers’ competencies, and professional tests employed in a systematic approach.

Conclusion. The paper presents a new technology for career guidance, which increases the processability, objectivity and effectiveness of professional self-determination of adolescents. The technology has confirmed its practical significance over a long period of its application and can be recommended for widespread adoption in Russian schools.
