Career Information Module for G&C 530, Career Development and Information Services.
Waidley, John W.
Because of the enormous amount of available career information, school counselors require the skills to identify the appropriate information for clients and to know its sources. Accordingly, this module consists of three training activities in career information gathering for school counselors. Activity 1, "Appropriate Information," focuses the counselor's or student's attention on the importance of collecting the appropriate information rather than the random collection of miscellaneous information. Students respond to a number of simulated career guidance situations, in which they are asked to identify which materials they think appropriate for each situation. Responses are discussed in small groups and reported back to the class. Activity 2, "Sources of Career Information," provides an overview of the sources of information as well as a system for classifying information as to purpose and quality of source. Activity 3, "Forms of Career Information," requires students to bring to class a "piece of career information." After analyzing this material as to its possible uses student counselors are asked to think of four effective ways to present career information to their clients, in accordance with Kolb's experiential learning theory model.
