Developing Career Counseling Services at a Predominately Black College: Implications for More Effective Programs for Black Students at "White" Colleges or Universities.
Hall, Samuel M., Jr.; And Others
The document presents a brief historical background leading to the development of career counseling services at Delaware State College. It includes the philosophy of career planning at the college which encourages the black student to investigate career opportunities during his freshman year so that four years of career exploration leads to meaningful job placement. Also investigated are current business and industrial trends to steer black students toward a usable career. Mechanisms of vocational counseling are discussed and five methods are listed: (1) a career conference workshop; (2) an individual counseling interview; (3) a testing program; (4) an occupational information library; and (5) followup of recent graduates' job experiences. The final section of the paper deals with the development of specific career educational programs (such as an interview workshop, student on and off campus employment service, on campus government testing) to increase career awareness, stimulate motivation and increase sophistication in the interview situation.
