Career Exploration Program: A Composite Systematic Functional Objective Model.
The composite systematic functional objective career exploration program model integrates various career development theoretical approaches. These approaches emphasize self-concept, life values, personality, the environment, and academic achievement and training as separate functions in explaining career development. Current social development in Malaysia emphasizes a philosophical thinking to formulate a society that is caring, besides being able to meet the challenges in the year 2000. The implication for the profession is obvious. Changing attitudes, incorporating good moral values, and challenges in meeting a social system with high technology usage requires a competent counselor. Career counselors must be prepared to incorporate their skills with the new thinking in order to achieve the expected integrated goals. Self-awareness in the composite systematic functional objective career development model is acquired through a pragmatic approach. For example, when the core emphasis utilized personality and the environment, other activities incorporating self-concept and trait and factor are integrated as supporting elements. The management by objective career development exploration system forms the foundation of the implementation program for the model. (Four stages of implementation are considered: (1) Stage 1: Definition of objective; (2) Stage 2: Program activities; (3) Stage 3: Budget control; and (4) Stage 4: Evaluation of the management system.
