Integrating Computer-Based Career Development into Your Career Planning Program.
Campbell, Robert B.; Mack, Sharon E.
This paper focuses on the real and theoretical usefulness of a computer-based career development system in a career planning program, based on a 2-year pilot program evaluating the DISCOVER system. The system overview discusses components and contents of DISCOVER, and describes the 11 modules which assist users in learning about their values, interests, and abilities. The section on marketing/utilization outlines how DISCOVER is marketed to students, staff, community members, and business and industry personnel. The full range of potential users of the system and its potential secondary benefits are illustrated. The final section, "Development of a Plan for Your Campus," uses a matrix developed by JoAnn Bowlsbey to show components of a career guidance program and how these can be delivered using alternative modes. An example of how a program might evaluate its delivery of a career guidance program is presented using matrices which show the process for assessing the best counselor functions and best computer functions, and the final selected mode of delivery.
