A Career Development Approach for Black Students.
Piotrowski, Chris; Keller, John W.
The Career and Life Planning (CLP) model is based on a CLP course that has been continually offered at the University of West Florida since 1971. The CLP model is an eight-step career development strategy that has been particularly effective with black students. Addressed in the individual steps of the model are the following areas: gaining self-awareness, developing a career personality profile, settling on four careers, projecting four careers into the future, developing a careers profile, preparing a resume, preparing for an employment interview, and preparing for subsequent careers. The CLP experience in obtaining vital information about one's career field and presenting oneself effectively in job interviews fosters both competence and confidence, two widely recognized ingredients of career placement success. The experiences of the many graduates of the CLP course at the University of West Florida have shown that the CLP model is a proven and effective means of career development and planning. (MN)
