With the development of career education research, career education in colleges and universities presents different research and practice characteristics among countries and regions. It will be lowly efficient if we rely on traditional academic exchanges to actively obtain and summarize the current research situation, therefore we use Citespace, a visualization literature analysis software, to analyze the relevant documents in Web Of Science core database , and draw the conclusion automatically. It includes the progress and deficiency of cooperative research, the characteristics of interdisciplinary research, the emerging hot spots and directions, and the continuous diversification of research objects.
